Newcastle LINKS is a First Aid society, passionate about educating people in all things First Aid (from cuts and sprains; to mountain rescue and major incidents).
There are 2 elements to Newcastle LINKS: a society in The Students’ Union and a Student Volunteering Unit in St John Ambulance where we unite the 2 local universities: Newcastle University and Northumbria University. Don't panic if you aren't from the uni! We welcome Northumbria Associate Membership.
Our society was founded over 20 years ago in 1995, with 5 members. The aim: to equip students with the skills to save a life. The name ‘LINKS’ is a historical artefact of the society, dating back to when the unit provided a link between St John Ambulance Cadet units and Adult units. Most of our members are new to volunteering: yet all would agree that you are part of the Newcastle LINKS family, regardless of whether you’re part of the society, or one of our event volunteers.
