10 things you can do to support StreetDoctors on our 10th Anniversary
This year is 10 years since StreetDoctors became a charity in 2013. In that time we have grown to 23 teams led by young healthcare volunteers in 18 cities all across the UK and have empowered over 25,000 young people with lifesaving skills.
Below are 10 things you can do to help StreetDoctors continue to empower young people to become lifesavers in their communities and ensure young people are part of the solution to violence:

We deliver award-winning lifesaving first aid training to young people affected by violence. Find out about the three workshops we offer and how to book here.
2. Purchase the E-Learning App for all your young people
