We help and serve the community of New Milton when they need it most at a time of life threatening medical emergency. We rely 100% on donations to our charity to fund this vital work.

New Milton CFR
New Milton Community First Responders started in 2016 and we are all unpaid volunteers, who serve the community by attending 999 emergency medical calls and providing basic life support until the arrival of the ambulance. Trained and despatched by the ambulance service, we do this to help our community at a time of medical emergency. Interested in joining? Then contact us for more information.
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:
- New Milton Town Council ( http://www.newmiltontowncouncil.gov.uk/ )
- Friends of New Milton ( http://newmiltonfriendsgroup.org.uk )
If 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.
