First Aider (Volunteer)

Updated: 19th February 2019

Whilst we aim to have at least one trained First Aid Volunteer on hand for every session, very occasionally First Aid requirements in a session can be challenging, so we would prefer two Volunteers where possible. A weekly or bi-weekly  experienced volunteer with previous medical and/or first aid knowledge is therefore required. 

Types of involvement might include: Minor Injury Assessment, Bleeding and Burns, Bandage or Dressing Application, Drug and other Dependency Awareness, Mental Health considerations.
