Leeds Student Community First Responders

Our volunteers are trained by Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) as Community First Responders.

They provide care to seriously ill patients in the local community before an ambulance arrives. Our scheme is based in north-west Leeds and comprises 60 student volunteers from the University of Leeds. We book ‘on-call’ in pairs, with a driver and passenger on each shift. Our scheme is led by a committee of volunteers, under the governance of YAS’s Community Resilience Team.
