The Swiss Alliance of Samaritans promotes the involvement of volunteers in rescue, health and community services. It ensures that those injured and who fall ill receive first aid. It fills the gaps in the network of social institutions through spontaneous or complementary intervention in the field of care and support. It develops an in-depth awareness for health and accident prevention

In Switzerland, around 21,000 women and men are involved in more than 900 local Samaritain sections, and around 2,800 children and adolescents are involved in 129 youth first-aid groups. The cantonal associations of the sections form the Swiss Samaritan Alliance (SSA), which maintains a secretariat in Olten. The seven-member Central Committee is responsible for the strategic management of the SSA. Together, the Central Committee and the secretariat form the central organisation.
