Become a Volunteer Co-responder

Community and co-responders are volunteers who support the work of the South Central Ambulance Service (SCAS). Responders are actively being sought who are based in Hungerford, Inkpen, Kintbury, Newbury and the Lambourn Valley.

You can become one of the over 1,300 community and co-responders who support SCAS. These are made up of members of the public, fire service, police community support officers, coastguards and military responders. They are all volunteers and undertake training to be able to help the people in our community with the support of SCAS.

SCAS is always on the lookout for more community and co-responders across the four counties in the South Central region. So if you are physically fit, have access to a vehicle and want to make a life-saving difference to your community, why not think about becoming one too? You’ll need to be able to give a minimum commitment of 20 on call hours a month. All training and support will be provided.

Shaun from Hungerford is a co-responder and encourages others to get involved. “It’s a wonderful and very practical way of helping others when they need it most,” he explains. “Because there are more co-responders than there are ambulance centres, you’ll often be the first on the scene. Those extra few minutes before the ambulance arrives can make all the difference – you can be a life-saver.”
