Street Doctors aims to reduce the number of deaths amongst young people by giving them the skills and confidence to save lives particularly when the injury has been caused by other youths.

The charity was started by two young doctors who were concerned about the number of young people being admitted to hospital from injuries related to youth violence.

They decided to offer short first aid courses that would equip young people with basic life saving skills and the knowledge and confidence to call the emergency services and request help.

Street Doctors also hopes by educating people about injuries related to violence it can also deter them from inflicting it on others.
