NHS Cadets is a new scheme created by St John Ambulance in partnership with the NHS, providing opportunities to explore skills, knowledge, and volunteering roles within healthcare. It is aimed at young people aged 14 to 18 who are from communities currently under-represented within the NHS and St John Ambulance.
The programme offers health awareness sessions, courses to develop leadership and communication skills and an experience in volunteering within the NHS.
The project specifically welcomes young people from backgrounds that are not widely represented in the NHS; those from British Minority Ethnic communities, young people not in, or at risk of not being in education, employment or training, young carers, or those who are in or have recently left care.
As a volunteer with our NHS Cadets Project, you’ll be trained to provide our young people with the skills and opportunities to sustain themselves in health care volunteering.
