Community Facilitator

  • VO97129


Being a Community Facilitator is all about delivering a variety of lifesaving first aid skills in community engagement workshops and projects, within local communities, and primary and secondary schools. A lot of these projects involve talking about and demonstrating the basics of first aid to community groups that can include children, young people, and vulnerable adults.
The role is all about promoting first aid awareness and helping to achieve our mission to create a nation of lifesavers.

St Andrew’s First Aid is Scotland’s dedicated first aid charity and leading first aid training provider. We believe no one should suffer or die because they needed first aid and didn’t get it.
