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.
An example of events you could be delivering a first aid talk and demo to, are primary and secondary schools, small university groups, local community groups, charities, summer fairs, shopping centres. Some of the skills you could be teaching include how to provide CPR and apply a defib, different bandages and how to use them, and basic information on various health conditions. Not only that but all the training needed, is provided by us at no cost to you!
A fantastic opportunity to help. All volunteers make a real difference and are greatly appreciated.

The Western Isles Duke of Edinburgh’s Award are looking for volunteer Youth Expedition Leaders.
Not all expeditions are done on foot, although this tends to be logistically most simple so many are, but can also be by other forms of transport that don’t have a motor. Options include cycling, kayaking, sailing, horse-riding, coasteering, long boarding etc. If you have experience in any of these activities (or others you can think of) then we would be very happy to hear from you! Bronze expeditions are for 2 days and 1 night, Silver are 3 days and 2 night, and Gold are 4 days and 3 night. At Bronze, there is just 1 expedition to complete, but at Silver and Gold each group complete a ‘practice’ expedition at each level, and then if leaders are happy to go on to complete their ‘qualifying’ expedition, which is assessed. If expeditions are not your thing, you can help out with the ‘admin’ side of things supporting the young people with their ‘edofe’, logging on and uploading their evidence and ensuring that their profile is up to date and assessor reports are in.
Training will be provided for any new volunteers.
Commitment would be various hours between April – September for Expeditions and the admin role would be ad-hoc all year round.
