The CFRs in your community are ordinary people who have been trained to give life saving help to their neighbours while an ambulance is on its way. We rely 100% on donations to our charity to fund this vital work.

Chief Executive, Vanessa Casey

Caversham CFR

The volunteers in this local scheme attend calls in the local area, usually within an 8/10 minute drive of their homes. The scheme would welcome donations, additional volunteers and help with fundraising.

What we do

We provide basic life support care until the arrival of the ambulance. We carry oxygen and a defibrillator as well as other medical equipment and pain relief. We can be with a patient very quickly – providing emergency care in the critical time before the ambulance arrives.

Supporters

We are very grateful to all those who have donated money, time and energy to the local CFR scheme for this community. If you live locally, or run a local business and could help us with our fundraising we would love to hear from you.

Events

Some CFRs run events where you can ‘meet the team’.

This area will display all events that the South Central Ambulance Charity are aware of.

 

CFRs often get asked to attend events such as a village fete or fair in order to demonstrate vital life saving skills and collect on behalf of our charity.

If you are organising an event and would like us to attend, please email us.

 

 

Some schemes have volunteers who are qualified to provide first aid cover at local events. To find out if we can do this for you please email us.
