What are our programmes?
Using a teachable moment intervention we offer a Reducing Violence Programme that includes emergency first-aid training sessions for young people affected by violence. This training can also forms part of our 12-week health and social care skills and employability programme, StepWise. Our training is delivered by young healthcare volunteers across the UK.
Why do our programmes work?
- Exclusive focus on young people affected by violence, who are most likely to be on the scene of a medical emergency resulting from violence.
- Peer-to-peer training by young student or professional doctors, nurses and paramedics engages and inspires young people.
- Skills-based intervention is proven to be effective in preventing youth offending.
- Asset-based model focuses on what is right with young people, not ‘what is wrong’ with them; so young people become part of the solution to violence, not just part of the problem.
- Trauma-informed approach safeguards those young people who might be triggered, traumatized or retraumatized in our sessions.
- Partner toolkit provided to all partners to help support young people pre-, during and post-delivery.
- Impact data is evaluated independently and has been awarded a Nesta level 2 standard of evidence and Project Oracle standard 2.
- Award-winning training has won 14 youth sector and charity awards.

The course changed my life. I had a friend who was stabbed recently. I would have been a lot more help to him if I’d done this course when it happened. I’ve told my friends what I have learnt here, so now they all know the basic first-aid techniques too
