DRIVER AWARENESS COURSE

A Driver Awareness Course, led by Vicki Turton from Surrey Community Action,

was held on 21st June 2017 at The Wheelhouse and was open to registered volunteers who drive for the Wheel of Care.

 

The aim of the course was 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 course was very well received and the feedback positive.  All the volunteer drivers thought the training was useful and would put the training into practice in their WoC volunteering.

 

It is hoped that another course will be run in the future.  If you would like to register your interest please contact Nicki Douet by e-mailing her at douet93@btinternet.com.

FIRST AID COURSE

The British Red Cross ran another "Everyday First Aid" session for Wheel of Care volunteers on 26th April 2017 at West Horsley Village Hall.

 

The course covered basic emergency first aid - stroke, heart attack, choking, CPR, broken bones, bleeding - and gave all participants the knowledge of what to do in the all-important time before an ambulance arrives.  Attendees were also 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 are welcome to attend but especially if you have not attended previously or if it has been more than 3 years since you last attended a first aid course.  If you are interested in attending a course in the future, please contact Nicki Douet by e-mailing her at douet93@btinternet.com
