They were regularly involved in delivering CPR and First Aid classes to local teenagers. They noticed: 

"The 11 to 16 year olds attending the first aid classes had known someone who had been stabbed or shot"

"or had been a victim themselves."

They decided to set out to educate young people about the consequences of carrying weapons through exploring attitudes to violence, including its true medical consequences.

STREETDOCTORS

Our main objective is to
give these young people the
confidence and skills
they need: 

to remain calm, call 999

and deliver simple life-saving first aid.

By equipping these young people with practical skills we aim to increase their confidence and aspirations, helping them to change their attitude towards violence so they become StreetDoctors in their communities

StreetDoctors has now become a social movement with 22 teams in 17 cities across the UK and Ireland.
