Gerard Mitchell, Fundraising Manager

I manage StreetDoctors fundraising, including all the grants and donations which enable us to provide all our services. It involves lots of planning, budgets, and requests for support. Donating really makes a huge difference – with such a small organisation it means your money goes directly to the services we provide for young people – so if you donate right now it would be amazing and make everyone here so happy! Thank you!

TJ Dairo, Programme Coordinator

I plan and co-ordinate our peer education programme, StepWise. This is where young people affected by violence learn emergency lifesaving skills, obtain a first-aid accreditation, career advice within the health sector and co-deliver, with the help of our trainee healthcare professionals, training to their peers.
