StreetDoctors teaches young offenders to save lives

Idealist

UK-based org StreetDoctors uses interactive demonstrations to teach young criminal offenders what to do if they’re involved with or witness to a stabbing or shooting. Every second counts when it comes to stopping blood loss, and young people out on the streets are often the first at the scene.

Since 2008, StreetDoctors has taught more than 1,400 young offenders in six cities around the UK how to survive street violence—and how to help.
