Who are we?
StreetDoctors is a national charity that empowers young people affected by violence to keep safe, save lives, and be part of the solution to street violence, by putting them at the centre of emergency first-aid provision.
We train young people affected by violence in the skills and knowledge to save lives, and increase their understanding of the medical and psychological consequences of violence.
Using a peer education model, our training is delivered by our network of young healthcare volunteers (nurses, paramedics and doctors) who work in partnership with criminal justice services, schools, pupil referral units, youth, sports and community groups. All our work is trauma informed.
