We make a difference to the lives of people who live and visit our great riverside community.

Goring & Streatley CFR

The Goring & Streatley Community First Responders are local unpaid volunteers living either side of the river who are trained and despatched by the ambulance service to life threatening emergency calls in Goring, Streatley and surrounding communities. We’re a very active scheme helping roughly 25 people per month.

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.


We are very grateful to all those who have donated money, time and energy to the local CFR scheme for this community. We would particularly like to thank:

  • Goring Gap News
  • Streatley Parish Council

f you live locally, or run a local business, and could help us with our fundraising we would love to hear from you.


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.
