First Aid Team

The county first aid team provides training for leaders in first response and higher levels of courses if required. The team is made up of healthcare professionals, professional trainers and scouts trainers.
We are able to deliver courses across the county with bookings made through ‘Bookwhen’. Additional courses can be arranged in any district if required.

Clarify external courses, deliver additional elements where external courses do not cover the requirements of the first response course.

The Recognition Team show appreciation for volunteers’ brilliant contribution, formally and informally.

The team will advertise volunteer opportunities for all county teams, including District Lead Volunteers. A member of the team will support the team leader with the welcome process.

The Recruitment & Welcome Team undertake induction, warmer welcome conversations and recruitment activities for all County teams. They regularly check in with Team Leaders to ensure the Volunteering Culture is embedded across all teams.



Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
