Volunteer Recruitment
We are keen to recruit new volunteer first aiders.  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 North  Hampshire area, and would like to know more about becoming a volunteer contact me by email:  Hester or phone 01252-629132 / 07941-980914. 

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.

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. 


Membership of the charity is open to any suitable person over the age of 16 years interested in furthering the aims of HFR.  There is no discrimination on grounds of age, sex, colour, disability etc.  However, suitability for active service in certain fields may be limited by reasons of insurance or requirements laid down in statutory law e.g. the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).  All members are responsible for ensuring the currency of any relevant certificates.

Applicants need to be proposed by a current member and provide contact details for one suitable referee. They may be required to undergo such checks as deemed to be relevant by the Executive Committee e.g. DBS.
