FIRST AID COURSE – FRIDAY 6th SEPTEMBER 2019

The British Red Cross will run another "Everyday First Aid" session for Wheel of Care volunteers on Friday 6th September 2019 from 10.30am-12.30pm at West Horsley Village Hall (Main Hall).

 

The course will cover basic emergency first aid, for example stroke, heart attack, broken bones, bleeding & CPR and gives all participants the knowledge of what to do in the all-important time before an ambulance arrives.  Attendees of the course will also be shown how to use a Public Access Defibrillator which is for anyone to use on someone in cardiac arrest.  These are stored in briefcase-sized boxes and can be found in public spaces like your local shopping centre, village hall or gym (there is one at West Horsley Village Hall).

 

All volunteers who have not attended a previous course or if it has been 3 years since you last attended are welcome to attend.  Invitations will be emailed to volunteers about 3 – 4 weeks before but if you are interested in attending this course, please contact Nicki Douet by emailing her at douet93@btinternet.com

DRIVER AWARENESS COURSE - WEDNESDAY 18th SEPTEMBER 2019

Surrey Community Action will run another Driver Awareness Course on Wednesday 18th September 2019 from 10am to 1pm at The Wheelhouse.  It is open to all registered volunteers who drive for the Wheel of Care.

 

The aim of the course is to help volunteers:

  • understand their own and operators’ general legal responsibilities,
  • understand health and safety issues that may arise in the course of their work,
  • be able to review their driving skills and produce a personal driving improvement plan,
  • be able to give safe and appropriate help to passengers according to their needs, and
  • be aware of safe and appropriate ways of dealing with non-routine situations.

The previous course was very well received and the feedback positive:

 

"I found a few road signs I didn't know about!  It was good to think about driving from a different angle - being ready for hazards etc."

 

"I found it informative and useful."

 

All the volunteer drivers thought the training was useful and would put the training into practice in their Wheel of Care volunteering.

 

All driving volunteers who have not attended a previous course are welcome to attend but will be restricted to 15 participants only.  Invitations will be emailed to volunteers about 3 – 4 weeks before but if you are interested in attending this course, please contact Nicki Douet by emailing her at douet93@btinternet.com
