  • Our Story

    Acknowledging Youths CIC will continue to share its seventh year of helping disadvantaged people into employment through

    a formal programme of training, workshops and job placements. So far, we have supported more than 4,000 people, but we

    need to do more! Especially as knife crime across London continues to cause alarm! The outcome of consulting with

    young people who have engaged with our training provisions, 30 per cent have said they knew someone who has been

    stabbed, or carried a knife, or had been in the vicinity of a stabbing. They also said, they would help someone if they had the

    knowledge/skill to do so. We are planning to incorporate alongside our training programmes, a First Aid Training provision

    to children and young people enabling…Saving Lives – Not Taking Them! New Project: As knife crime across London

    continues to cause alarm, an analysis of data from the Metropolitan Police shows that, in the past eight years, knife crime in

    Tower Hamlets has increased by 34 per cent; from 794 offences in 2010-2011 to 1065 in 2017-2018. We are planning to

    provide First Aid Training to children and young people enabling…Saving Lives – Not Taking Them! We need funding for a

    Tutor, First Aid equipment and laptops to enable us to move forward with delivering this provision. This project will train

    disadvantaged young people to be First Aiders in their homes, schools and their communities. This training will be ongoing

    to develop those First Aiders to become First Aid Trainers, who will themselves deliver first aid training to their peers and

    community. Through this project AY envision that those who engage with our First Aid Training, will benefit by developing

    skills to make good decisions that could be potentially lifesaving, will be rewarding as they will be doing something amazing,

    effective and inspirational. We will be teaching everyday young people from disadvantaged communities to do something

    extraordinary! Through this initiative, young people become agents of positive change who inspire others to act. The course

    objective: – To have knowledge and understanding of a selection of different emergencies. – To be able to assist with

    emergencies that they may come across. – Understand the role and responsibilities of a first aider. – Know how to assess

    an incident. – Manage an unresponsive casualty who is breathing normally. – Manage an unresponsive casualty who is not

    breathing normally. – Recognise and assist a casualty who is choking. – Manage a casualty who is wounded and bleeding. –

    Understand how to manage a casualty with a minor injury.

    On completion of this course participants will be able to: – Deal with First Aid emergencies. – Provide necessary first aid

    within the workplace. – Understand and demonstrate essential lifesaving skills. Our course will be delivered by qualified First

    Aid Trainers, who are registered with, monitored and assessed by the First Aid Industry Body (FAID). All successful

    participants will be issued with certificates, valued for 2 years. Feedback questionnaire will be completed by participants at

    the end of the course. We aim to offer our First Aid for Beginners course to groups of 10 participants monthly and anticipate

    training 120 First Aider over 12 months. Learning simple first aid skills and gaining the confidence to use them will develop

    in clients the self-awareness that they are of value to themselves and their community, and can learn practical skills,

    increasing the probability of them seeking further training and education. There is also the unquantifiable but real increase in

    self-worth and self-confidence in clients that undertake any training in an obviously useful skill. The institute for Employment

    Studies report “Tackling unemployment among disadvantaged young people” highlights how achieving a useful skill

    develops the ability for Disadvantage Youth clients to aspire to breakout of a self-reinforcing cycle of self-doubt and low

    achievement”.
