About StreetDoctors

StreetDoctors is a national charity that puts young people at the centre of emergency first-aid provision and empowers them to become part of the solution to violence.

Why do we exist?

At StreetDoctors we believe knowledge is power. So we empower young people at risk with the skills to become part of the solution to violence, rather than just being seen as ‘part of the problem’.

What do we do?

We empower young people affected by violence with the skills and knowledge to save lives, and increase their understanding of the medical and psychological consequences of violence.

How do we do it?

Our training is delivered by our movement of young healthcare volunteers (nurses, paramedics and doctors) who work in partnership with criminal justice services, schools, pupil referral units, youth, sports and community groups. All our work is trauma informed.

What is StreetDoctors?


[StreetDoctors] has changed my mind, now I wouldn’t think about taking a knife out because I can hurt myself, giving yourself all these problems and the guilt of doing it to someone else.
