Community Engagement Trainer

We believe everyone should know how to respond in a medical emergency.

To help achieve this we fund a Community Engagement Trainer who works with local community groups, organisations and societies teaching them life saving skills.

The course content includes CPR and also shows how to treat the most common emergencies such as heart attack or stroke; skills that could be vital in an emergency.  The training is free, but groups are just asked to provide a venue. The course lasts two and a half hours. Each of the attendees receive a certificate of attendance.

The Community Engagement Trainer is able to adapt the course to meet the needs of the group and this has proved successful in enabling everyone to join in and learn these vital skills.  We receive countless letters of thanks, where individuals have put their training into practice.

MORE INFORMATION


"All members of our community thoroughly enjoyed the first aid awareness training and are very grateful to  Ali for delivering the course.  It is vital to hold such training sessions which not only raise awareness but also give a greater insight into how Yorkshire Ambulance Service works.  We have now decided to fundraise and purchase a Community Public Access Defibrillator to be placed outside the Mosque for the benefit of everyone".
