About the role

We want to give adults in the community the skills to cope in a crisis. That's why we offer first aid training relating to the effects of drugs; alcohol; slips, trips, and falls in the over 65's, homelessness and rough sleepers.

Our adult education volunteers deliver interactive first-aid workshops to enable adults to understand, cope with, and respond to a first aid crisis. This includes adults who may be vulnerable or at risk, their friends & family, carers, or others who support them.
