YourStance Request (Portfolio)

Organisation Description

YourStance is a preventative educational project which empowers young people at risk from serious youth violence by teaching them lifesaving skills that enable them to make informed decisions when faced with an emergency. We teach vulnerable youths aged 11 – 25 how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and hemorrhage control. To reduce morbidity and mortality caused by serious youth violence in our communities by teaching skills and having open conversations between experienced healthcare professionals and young people.

Interpersonal violence involving knives is a major public health problem. Research released 2022 illustrated the influence of age on injury patterns resulting from knife violence, and supported the expansion of outreach initiatives promoting bystander-delivered hemorrhage control of extremity wounds. It highlighted how timely treatment and action can improve health and life outcomes for young victims of serious youth violence. These are the skills provided in our workshops and the community.
