First Aid Training Programme for volunteers
We're based in North  Hampshire and meet once a week on Tuesday evenings at Crondall Old Gymnasium (map) from 8 to 10pm. There are over 20 HFR volunteers, ranging in age from 16  to 70+ who come from around the Fleet area (including Camberley, Farnham, Basingstoke and Baughurst).   This training is free and is also open to anyone in the local area who may wish to update their skills, including local NHS Community Responders, or others that we have previsouly trained in the past.  Follow this link to the current volunteers training programme.

Volunteer Recruitment
We are keen to recruit new volunteer first aiders (download application form).  We have opportunities for anyone holding a current First Aid at Work certificate to get involved, and places for those interested in training-up. You'll meet people, learn new skills and have an interesting time (see photos)!

If you live in the area, and would like to know more about becoming a volunteer contact me by email:  Hester or phone 01252-629132 / 07941-980914. 

Without first aid cover our local fetes, bonfires, triathlons and other sporting events would be unable to run, so do something worthwhile by using your skills to give a little back to the community. 

Volunteers need to  attend at least half the Tuesday evening training sessions  to maintain and develop their skills and are expected when available to cover events of their choice at weekends.  For students who are away at University during term time and cannot attend weekly training we try to have additional training days during the holidays.  However,  this does mean that they cannot have full first aider status at events until they can attend regular update training. Volunteers  are supported at events with full mentoring/supervision from the more experienced  members to enable all to provide appropriate first aid treatment to patients. 

Annual Awards and AGM
Each year in November, we celebrate the sucess of our volunteers at our annual awards evening.  Certificates of acheivement are presented to all volunteers and in addition there are three awards announced on the night for: 

  • Patient Care
  • Service
  • Fundraising 
Annual awards and AGM reports are provided below:
