StreetDoctors is a national charity that empowers young people affected by violence to keep safe, save lives, and be part of the solution to street violence, by putting them at the centre of emergency first-aid provision.

Our Vision - An end to street violence affecting young people.

Our Mission - To empower young people through training to keep safe, save lives and be part of the solution to street violence.

Our Values:

  • Empowering – We believe knowledge is power, so we share skills with young people, enabling them to make more informed choices.
  • Collaborative – We believe partnerships are crucial, so we work together with youth organisations, healthcare volunteers and young people to reduce street violence.
  • Inclusive – We treat people with respect, we value diversity and we work to ensure equality.
  • Compassionate – We are considerate and empathetic, and rooted in trauma-informed practice.


Using a peer education model, our training is delivered by our network of young healthcare volunteers (nurses, paramedics and doctors) who work in partnership with criminal justice services, schools, pupil referral units, youth, sports and community groups.

All our work is trauma informed.
