  • They teach lifesaving skills to young people at risk of youth violence across the UK.
  • They want to increase the likelihood of young people at risk making positive choices that benefit their own and others'​ well-being.
  • Taught lifesaving skills to over 12.900 young people

Their network of volunteer healthcare students teaches lifesaving skills to young people at risk of youth violence across the UK. They do this by interactive training sessions delivered with a range of associates.

In 2017 alone they taught emergency life-saving skills to 3511 young people, and they know of 14 cases where young people have used the skills they teach at scenes of medical emergencies. Their sessions are taught by a dedicated network of over 375 volunteer medical students and junior doctors, based in 18 local teams around the UK.

These sessions give young people vital skills and confidence to act when someone is bleeding or unconscious. They provide safe areas to explore attitudes to violence, including its true medical consequences. The organization empowers young people to become StreetDoctors in their neighborhoods, helping to keep themselves and others safe.
