We are the South London StreetDoctors team, and we equip young people at risk of youth violence with the skills to save lives in their communities and with the knowledge to make informed decisions about keeping themselves and others safe.
We do this by teaching emergency first aid, including what to do if someone is bleeding or unconscious.
We use a peer to peer teaching approach delivered by healthcare volunteers (student nurses and paramedics and medical students) who work in partnership with criminal justice services, schools, pupil referral units, sports and community groups.
By putting young people at the centre of emergency first-aid provision, we empower young people to become part of the solution to youth violence, rather than just being seen as ‘part of the problem’.
