The British Red Cross helps people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are.

We are part of a global voluntary network, responding to conflicts, natural disasters and individual emergencies. We help vulnerable people in the UK and abroad prepare for, withstand and recover from emergencies in their own communities.

Training offered:

Within our community education team, we offer two engaging workshops designed to help young people actively learn first aid skills and explore stigma that may affect refugees, asylum seekers and migrants.

First aid
Using age appropriate scenarios we build young people’s confidence and willingness to help in a first aid emergency, including those related to knife crime or drug and alcohol use. Young people will learn first aid skills such as unresponsive and breathing, unresponsive and not breathing, bleeding and head injuries. Our tailored first aid workshops help young people assess and manage risks and make informed decisions. The group will look at the qualities of a helper and how to manage and support others.

Stigmatising behaviour
Helps young people to explore terms such as refugees, asylum seekers and migrants. The workshop will help develop understanding on why someone might have to flee their home and help young people to empathise with people arriving in a new place. The group will also analyse and discuss the harmful effects of stigmatising behaviour.
