I joined StreetDoctors in February 2018 and have previously worked for a number of charities in international development, health and youth policy. I have fulfilled a variety of roles in fundraising, policy and data. Having studied Social Policy at university and before then, I had always been interested in social issues, especially those which affect young people and children. I am excited to be working with such a fantastic charity which is taking the public health approach to help tackle youth violence. The best part of my role is getting to work alongside the dedicated teams of volunteers and helping them to raise both awareness and funds for StreetDoctors. If you would like to take on a fundraising challenge or raise money for StreetDoctors then please do get in touch and I will be more than happy to support you!

Clare Reeder

I have been a member of the StreetDoctors team since 2012 and seen it grow. My roles started as a volunteer, then to Liverpool team leader, to then being the national lead for research and evaluation- I have enjoyed every moment. Now as MD I hope to see us grow from strength to strength.
I studied neuroscience, psychology and finally medicine and completed my first two years as a doctor in West London.
StreetDoctors’ passion, energy and clear goal of trying to reduce the impact of youth violence in a practical way is something that is so very special and a privilege to be a part of.

My name is Laura a 4th year medical student from the university of Glasgow I’ve been a member of streetdoctors for two years now and hope to grow and develop further into Glasgow’s wider community teaching life saving first aid to young people.

Madeleine Barnett

Hi, my name is Madeleine and I’ve been part of StreetDoctors for the past three years; this year I’m excited to be team leader for Manchester! Being part of a national charity, teaching young people at risk of youth violence, is a great experience. Helping them learn and gain confidence, to realise that they CAN make a difference and save lives, is what we aim to achieve in our sessions. Sometimes a young person may show little enthusiasm at the start of the teaching session but it’s great to see them become more involved and interested by the end of the session. My aims for the year ahead include highlighting the work that StreetDoctors does in Manchester, helping us to organise more teaching sessions in and around the city. This will enable us to reach more young people, in our mission to end youth violence. If you’re interested in the work we do in Manchester, please get in contact with us!

I have been with Cardiff StreetDoctors since it formed in 2016 and I have absolutely loved it. It is such a privilege to be part of a charity that actively reduces youth violence within the UK. I am so happy to be part of a great community of volunteers and young people. Wales has its own set of problems and I look forward to seeing how we tackle these complex issues as a team.

I was attracted to StreetDoctors by a compelling approach to addressing violence among young people and its aftermath. The young medics, who volunteer, are passionate and committed to shifting the mindsets of vulnerable young people away from violence, while giving them the skills and confidence to save lives.

I have over 38 years’ experience with multi-national corporates and the public sector, particularly of change management in Finance and Services with organisation facing significant growth or financial pressures.

I first got involved with StreetDoctors in 2016. I am passionate about the ethos that StreetDoctors and enjoy teaching. It is a privilege to be able to pass on a positive message and empower others through teaching them life-saving first aid skills.

As soon as I read about StreetDoctors, I instantly knew I wanted to be a part of it. It’s an incredible charity working hard to empower young people.

As one of the ‘champions’ setting up the brand new Keele team, I am very passionate about StreetDoctors. We deliver fun, engaging but also life-changing teaching sessions to young people who need it the most.

I hope to find more delivery partners around the local area so we can teach and make a positive change to as many young people as possible!

Eleanor Hendicott

Growing up, I was fortunate enough to live in an affluent area of the UK, where I was presented with many opportunities, but not everyone is as lucky as I was. I firmly believe that regardless of background, ethnicity or upbringing, all young people have a potential that can be realised with a little nurture and encouragement.

When I heard about StreetDoctors, during my 2nd year of university, I instantly knew I wanted to apply, joining in 2016. It was a unique opportunity to really make a difference to the community and lives of young people. After a year of teaching, fundraising and fun, I was delighted to become Birmingham team leader. I am immensely proud of my team (and all volunteers) for their tireless commitment, passion and dedication to ‘end youth violence’.
