Event First Aid volunteer (British Red Cross)


How would I be helping people?:

  • You would be prepared to cope with emergencies in the community, at work and in the home.
  •  As an event first aid volunteer, you could help your community by:Providing first aid cover at large and small public events such as music festivals, concerts, sports events and a wide variety of other activities.
  • Once you have acquired sufficient event first aid experience, you would also have the option of becoming a trainer to help in training up new volunteers by delivering first aid training courses. We would provide you with the further training needed for this additional role.

What skills and training do I need?

  • You do not need any previous first aid skills.
  • We will train you in first aid and the other skills needed and give you the knowledge and support you need for this role.
  • You do need the desire to learn, as well as a willingness to practise regularly plus the time and availability to put your skills to use at events like those above once we have trained you.
  • You also need a mature, friendly approach to other people and to be prepared to follow instructions
