First Aid and First Aid Trainer Training - Enabling Disadvantaged Young People To Support Their Community and Enhance Employability - 2020-2021
Please give a detailed description of the project.
AY Group Community Services (AYG) needs funding for Tutors, First Aid equipment and volunteers costs to enable us to move forward with delivering this provision. As Knife crime in London continues to spiral out of control; we are fundraising to provide First Aid Courses to children and young adults in schools and in the Hammersmith & Fulham and Tower Hamlets communities. We want to provide FREE First Aid Training to young people enabling…Saving Lives – Not Taking Them! This project will train disadvantaged young people to be First Aiders in their homes, schools and their communities. This training can also be ongoing to develop those First Aiders to become First Aid Trainers, who will themselves deliver first aid training to their peers and in the community. Through this project we envision that those who engage with our First Aid Training, will benefit by developing skills to make good decisions that could be potentially lifesaving; be rewarding as they will be doing something amazing, effective and inspirational! We will be teaching everyday young people from disadvantaged communities to do something extraordinary! Through this initiative, young people will become agents of positive change who inspire others to act. Our Emergency First Aid at Work is a one day Level 3 nationally recognised course meeting requirements outlined by the HSE. The course teaches real lifesaving skills that can be used in and away from the workplace. The course objectives are to build knowledge and understanding of a selection of different situations: to be able to assist with emergencies; understand the role and responsibilities of a first aider; know how to assess an incident; manage an unresponsive casualty who is or is not breathing normally; recognise and assist a casualty who is choking; manage a casualty who is wounded and bleeding (particularly from a stabbing).
