LIVES is a charity supporting 700+ highly trained and dedicated volunteer medics and Community First Responders (CFR) living in communities across Greater Lincolnshire.
CFRs get to members of their local community fast to administer vital emergency care before handing over to the ambulance service.
They are there for more than 20,000 people each year, that’s an average of 55 people visited by our volunteers every day.
Their actions save lives.
To make sure they can be there in medical emergencies in the future our charity needs to raise £1million each year (approx £50 per person assisted) from public donations.
There is a LIVES group for the Barrow/Barton area which is, unfortunately, lesser-known than it used to be (and therefore less subscribed to). There are always spaces available to become a CFR or fundraiser, depending on how you wish to contribute. Other than an initial couple of training days at LIVES HQ in Horncastle and a yearly re-qualification (usually local), there is little commitment; you can give as much or as little time as you’re able, to be on standby for your community in the event of an emergency.
