Empowering young people affected by violence to keep themselves and others safe.

We are a movement of young healthcare volunteers who train young people to become lifesavers in their communities, using teachable moment style interventions with partners across the UK.

About us

StreetDoctors volunteer Kwaku talks to The Sun about inspiring young people to save lives

“When I see how much it motivates them, it motivates me too.” Kwaku, as part of The National Lottery’s Who Cares Wins Awards, tells his story of growing up around knife crime and what he does for his community now.

8 Minutes to Save a Life

It takes 8 minutes for an ambulance to arrive on the scene of a stabbing, and in that time you could help save a life. What else could you do? Our new campaign for young people.

Our impact


young people have been trained by StreetDoctors to be lifesavers since 2013!


young people were trained in 2020 by working with 175 partners all over the UK


young people understand the consequences of violence after attending our training


I feel if young people knew about the stuff that I learnt in StreetDoctors it would be better to help young people develop as a society and the next generation.
