Street Doctors Ltd
Founded in Liverpool in 2008, StreetDoctors recruits volunteer medical students and junior doctors to equip young people at high risk of violence with emergency life-saving skills and the confidence to use them. Young people are taught in pre-hospital care and often change their attitude to using violence in the first place. The Fore funds enabled Street Doctors to transition from being a small scale student voluntary organisation to a national movement and charity teaching over 7,600 young people since 2013. Specifically, the funds enabled them to employ a part time CEO and to develop the infrastructure to formally contract with Youth Offending Institutions and Teams.
