Face-to-face sessions of our Community Education workshops allow our educators to work in person with groups in the community. Covering humanitarian, first aid and wellbeing topics, the workshops aim to support personal development and build resilience. 

On this page you can find out more about who is eligible for a face-to-face session, and request a booking.

What is a face-to-face session?

The face-to-face session involves one of the British Red Cross educators travelling to meet a group at their chosen location and delivering the workshop in person. During the session the group will take part in activities and there will be a chance to discuss the topic together.

Availability of face-to-face

Before applying please be aware availability of face-to-face sessions are limited. You may want to consider:

  • How would your group benefit from a face-to-face session? We work with groups in a suitable venue of their choice and look to support those most in need of our help.
  • Am I part of a group or an individual? Face-to-face is only available for adults (ages 19+) or youth groups ( ages 10- to 18). Online and telephone workshops are available for individuals.     
  • Is there an educator active in my area? While we are working hard to ensure as many people in need can access our workshops, we can only provide face-to-face delivery where an educator is currently based.
  • Do I want to book a first aid workshop for my workplace? Our First Aid workshops do not meet workplace requirements. For accredited first aid courses, please visit British Red Cross training.

Community Education workshops

If you aren't able to attend a face-to-face session, you can take part in a workshop online or over the telephone. All our workshops follow the same structure and contain the same activities, though these are slightly adapted for the type of delivery.
