What do they do?
Our volunteer trainers deliver face-to-face, digital or remote emergency first-aid training to young people affected by violence across the UK, as part of our Reducing Violence Programme or StepWise Programme. They empower young people to become lifesavers in their communities and give them confidence to make informed decisions about keeping themselves and others safe.
It has opened my eyes to the realities facing young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, and the work that needs to be done to tackle the societal factors contributing to violence affecting young people.StreetDoctors volunteer
To deliver our training they work with delivery partners, such as criminal justice organisations, schools, pupil referral units, youth and sports clubs and community groups.
