Following the death of a 10 year old boy after he was misdiagnosed by paramedics, South Western Ambulance Service have made training videos with his parents to stop it happening again.
Hope Support Services Need Volunteers In Gloucestershire
Hope Support Services in Gloucestershire is looking to create their first youth management team from Gloucestershire.
Hope supports young people aged 11-25 when a close family member is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness.
At the heart of the charity is their Herefordshire based youth management team (the Y team). They are a group of young people who have all been through their own family health crisis and feel ready to help others in the same situation.
'Hope' have been providing their face-to-face support in Gloucestershire for the past year and now looking to recruit young volunteers to be a part of a new Gloucestershire Y-Team.
Ness Holbrook Hope's Youth Development officer for Gloucestershire said:
'We are looking for young people aged 14-25 who have been through a family health crisis and would like to help others going through a similar situation.
'If you would like to be involved in an exciting opportunity in you local community and are enthusiastic and up for a challenge we'd love to hear from you.'
