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.
