Become a Community First Responder

CFR Training

Could you be a Community First Responder?

We have just over 600 Community First Responders, and over the next two years would like to reach 1,000.  It’s a challenging role but we provide all of the training needed, and we’re there to support you at every step of this journey. 

To apply to us you need to be able to offer us at least 5 hours per week of your time.  We can only accept applicants who are over 18, and have been driving for at least one year, with access to a vehicle which is insured, and has a valid MOT if applicable.  If you do have points on your driving license, three is the maximum number that we can accept. 

We hold selection interviews and the screening process comprises a Disclosure and Barring Service Check (DBS), professional references and health clearance. 

We offer all the training that you will need, covering the Community First Responder scope of practice, but it’s also important that every year you undertake our online modules including infection prevention and control, safeguarding adults and children and information governance. 

Applications will be received online, through the NHS Jobs site.  Please keep checking this page to see when the next advertisement is open, or alternatively you can create your own role search on NHS jobs to receive an email notification.
