    • How are we funded


      Most would assume that the basic equipment would be provided by the Ambulance Service. The Community First Responder Scheme receives operational support, training and some equipment. Much of the equipment and running costs are paid for by public donations, grants and support from local companies or associations.

      It costs about £2,000 to equip each responder, so any donation large or small can really help to make a difference.

      Fundraising is absolutely vital to our continuing existence. We are always looking for new members to join our friendly fundraising team. Could you do this? Please email - Info@eastbourneresponders.com
