The Charity works across Hampshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire as well as supporting our Patient Transport Services in Surrey and Sussex.
All our Community First Responders and Co-Responders (CFRs) are volunteers, and they come from every walk of life. What they have in common is their desire to make a difference by volunteering in life and death situations. CFRs assist the Ambulance Service by attending emergency calls in the areas where they live or work. As they are local, they can often reach a potentially life-threatening emergency in the first vital minutes before the ambulance crew can get to the scene.
A little bit of knowledge goes a long way towards saving a life. We want to deliver:
- Defibrillator awareness training in every community
- First aid and basic life-saving training in schools and communities
- Access to lifesaving skills and information for everyone by making basic training available online
The NHS does not fund the ambulance service to provide this. With your help, we can give local communities the skills they need to help themselves, and each other, in a life-threatening emergency.
Our ability to provide life–saving care is increasingly dependent on our ability to make sure our staff have access to all the latest technology. The NHS funds SCAS to make sure everyone has the basic tools they need to do their jobs. We also support the mental health and wellbeing of our staff and volunteers by enhancing their working environments. With your help, we could give our staff access to equipment to allow even better care of patients.
