StreetDoctors is a small national charity that teaches young people at risk of violence how to perform life-saving first aid.
#HighFiveToSaveALife is StreetDoctors National campaign in response to the increase in prevalence of knife crime amongst young people.
We want to see an end to youth violence. To help StreetDoctors teach more young people what to do if they see someone who is bleeding or unconscious we want you to #HighFiveToSaveALife.
There are five reasons to support StreetDoctors;
1. Youth violence is on an increase.
2. StreetDoctors teaches the true medical consequences of violence.
3. StreetDoctors changes and saves lives.
4. StreetDoctors challenges attitudes towards violence.
5. StreetDoctors empowers young people to act.
From Saturday 23rd February 2019 we invite you, our supporters, to help bring attention to the issue of knife crime in the UK. It's easily done by posting a picture or video of yourself high-fiving someone or maybe the biggest group you can gather! How inventive can you be with your post? Share your post online and nominate 5 friends to do the same and ask for a donation of £5 to StreetDoctors from each. We will also begin to share our campaign from Thursday 21st February so please do re-share/re-tweet and spread the word so more people get involved! If you would like to get involved early, then please do start to share your high-fives and donate a fiver.
