Lucy Fisher 

Partnership Manager

I am passionate about promoting inclusion to provide opportunities and improve outcomes for young people. I have worked in a variety of education settings and across the voluntary sector, fostering meaningful collaborations to help support and empower many diverse communities.                                                                                                                   
In my role as Partnership Manager, I am striving to build strong and sustainable relationships with a range of stakeholders from across the statutory and voluntary sectors, including non-profits, government agencies, and community organisations, as we seek to equip more young people with life-saving skills.

I am keen to create mutually beneficial partnerships that align with the mission, vision, and values of St John Ambulance, working collaboratively to make a positive impact, meaningfully engaging those from underserved communities and ensuring that the needs of all young people remain at the heart of our work

Young Responders Facilitator

"Looking forward to making a positive and Empowering Input!" 

My favourite thing is watching students, engage and participate excitedly in providing first-aid, help and support. Their questions and interactions means that they are interested in making a positive difference to their community and to become role models for their generation.
I hope to be able to give learners an understanding, confidence and the power to be able to help in a much needed situation where someone needs first-aid support with their life-saving skills that they will take away from my sessions.

Rio Chawla

Young Responders Facilitator

Hello, I am Rio Chawla and I am a Young Responders Facilitator. 

I will be delivering essential first aid sessions to young people, covering physical health, mental health and street violence. I’m looking forward to engaging with young people and learning from them as they learn from me. 

I hope that by equipping the youth with these lifesaving skills and knowledge, we would be taking another step forward in empowering them to further take action that would encourage positive change in their own communities.  

I’m excited to be part of this project and look forward to working with and supporting the young responders at your school or college.

Young Responders Facilitor

"Teaching younger people vital skills that they may not know already like how to look after their mental health"

What I enjoy most about being a facilitator is connecting with my team and how we all work together. 

I hope to be able to reach out to as many vulnerable young people as possible who may be at more risk from street violence and poor mental health than others.

Young Responders Facilitor

"Enabling young people to make a huge difference in their own lives and in that of others"
Hello, I am Sharanjit Kaur and I am the course facilitator for the West Midlands region. I will be delivering in person physical and mental health first aid sessions to young people who would otherwise not have access to our programmes.
I care about the welling-being of young people and the issues they face thus each session will be tailored to the needs of the group, whilst also ensuring students gain practical skills which can be applied immediately.
As well as gaining vital life skills that can save lives in emergency situations, these sessions will get learners thinking about early intervention by recognising signs and symptoms within themselves and those around them before reaching crisis point. I am excited to be sharing this learning with you and look forward to having you with us!
