Ambulance Volunteer Development Pack
Our resource for ambulance volunteers provides an overview of how we can work inclusively and provide support to LGBT+ people. Health inequalities are outlined as well as good practice guidance. The last section encourages empowerment and finding out about support services in the area you work in.
A Welsh language version is also available.
Links to Other Resources
Our website contains lots of useful information and this is available to volunteers. Here are some key links to additional resources.
We have three professional development resources available, and these are:

Our Supporting Trans People z-card leaflet is celebrated for helping people understand the needs of transgender people, especially in emergency situations. It is designed to fit into your pocket and can be downloaded and printed from our website. This resource is available in English, Welsh and Polish.
