Dr Jasmine Fulcher

Hi! My name is Jasmine (or Jaz as most people call me). I’m excited and honoured to become a Trustee. StreetDoctors is a charity very close to my heart; I’ve been a volunteer with them since 2014 and in that time have taken on various roles including Team Leader, research and development team lead, as well as delivering teaching sessions to young people across the country.

A bit about me… I was born and raised in South East London. I’m a junior doctor, qualified in 2019 and work in the NHS. I’m the first doctor in my family, so as you can imagine, it was (still is) a big deal for us all. Before becoming a doctor, I was a registered nurse, also within the NHS. I’m very proud of being a doctor and of my nursing background, but actually when I left school, I wanted to be an actor! I went to the BRIT school for performing arts and have a BTEC National Diploma in Theatre Arts.

I have always been passionate about justice and inclusivity, which is why I believe so strongly in the work that StreetDoctors as a charity does. Young people deserve to live a life free from fear and stigma. I like to think that the work we do with StreetDoctors, alongside other organisations, is helping little by little to create a world where young people are protected, respected and believe in their own power and potential.
