Who We Are

StreetDoctors is a charity registered in the UK. We change the lives of high risk young people by giving them the skills they need to deliver life-saving first aid. But as well as saving lives we use first aid as a tool to educate and empower these young people, giving them confidence and a sense of responsibility for their actions, helping to change their attitude towards violence.

who were regularly involved in delivering CPR and First Aid classes to local teenagers


they noticed

"The 11 to 16 year olds attending the first aid classes had known someone who had been stabbed or shot"


"or had been a victim themselves."



they decided to set out and

these young people
from carrying weapons in
the first place.

Our main objective is to
give these young people the

By equipping these young people with practical skills 


we aim to increase their

confidence and aspirations,
