I am so proud to be one of the first nursing students this year who are a part of Street Doctors! It is amazing to be part of a movement, led by healthcare professionals, to help reduce the fatal consequences of gang-related violence. Seeing young people engaging in our sessions, learning and understanding that they really could save a life, gives a lot of satisfaction. It certainly is a two-way street, as we learn so much from them to help us become better healthcare professionals.

My co-team leader, Izzy, and I are really looking forward to setting the standard for the future of the North East London team. Nurses have a different perspective and our aim is to keep the energy, morale and family-spirit sky-high throughout the year, within the team and when teaching the young people of North East London!

Having only been with StreetDoctors for 2 years; I feel there is a lot the young people have taught me about the challenges many of them face daily and it has opened up my eyes to many of their struggles. To then be able to give many of them the knowledge, power and encouragement to save someones life only adds to the humbling feeling. My goal for the upcoming year is to reach out to as many young people as we can to end this youth violence epidemic.

I joined StreetDoctors as Director of Operations and Finance in November 2018.  I have worked in the Third Sector in both a paid and voluntary capacity since 2003. My most recent position was as Head of Business Performance at Chickenshed, where I saw at first hand the power of giving young people the tools that can transform their lives. Sometimes the simplest things can have the most profound impact, and I strongly believe in StreetDoctors’ vision of young people being the solution to issues of youth violence. I am proud to be part of a staff team and a group of volunteers who have such vision and pride in their work, and look forward to contributing to the growth of StreetDoctors in the coming years.

This year has been the first year I’ve volunteered with StreetDoctors. I love the idea of teaching young people not only basic first aid but also providing them with the skills and the support they need to make better life choices in the future. Whether this is teaching them ‘there’s no safe place to stab’ or helping them become involved in programmes such as StepWise, it’s heartwarming to hear feedback at the end of a teaching session when a young person says they enjoyed the content or learned something new.

Being part of such an amazing team and being surrounded by people who work tirelessly in order to provide a better, safer community for everyone has been immensely rewarding. I look forward to many more years of working with StreetDoctors.

I joined StreetDoctors in September 2018 as part of the Charityworks graduate programme after having graduated with a BA Hons in Geography earlier in the year. I was motivated to apply for the role at StreetDoctors after being shocked to learn that there was an increase of knife crime offences of 21% in 2017 across the UK and that some young people truly believe that there is a ‘safe place’ on the body to stab someone. It is a privilege to work for such an important and valuable organisation.
