The South Central Ambulance Charity is a registered charity (no 1049778), which exists to raise funds to support the South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SCAS). In particular they raise funds to train and equip over 1000 volunteer Community First Responders (CFRs), who in 2016/17 responded to 18,805 emergency calls, arriving on scene in an average of 5.44 minutes. All monies raised by CAWC will go directly to invest in the services provided by the Community First Responders - South Bucks that are not funded by the NHS.
Community First Responders - South Bucks
Community First Responder (CFR) Schemes cover Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire and Oxfordshire, in both urban and rural areas. Our CFRs are trained to deliver life-saving skills such as the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED), basic airway management and oxygen therapy, and cardiopulmonary resuscitation, or CPR. Because CFRs only respond to emergencies in the area where they live or work, they can arrive at the scene shortly before an ambulance gets there. By being able to start life-saving medical treatment earlier, CFRs really do help save more lives.
