Our volunteers practise the art of casualty simulation, using make-up and acting, to bring realism to the training and ongoing practice of first aiders, rescuers, emergency services, hospital doctors and nurses. They learn from instant feedback during handling and treatment, and from any debrief session afterwards. Problems are resolved with us to the benefit of real-life casualties in the future.

Cat Action Trust 1977 is a small national charity dedicated to the welfare of feral cats. We have an Executive Committee and nine branches: Ayrshire, Bewdley, Central London, Doncaster South, East Kilbride (Lanarkshire), Jersey, Leeds, Nuneaton And Hinckley, Shaw, The charity is run entirely by volunteers, which means that the bare minimum is spent on administrative costs and almost all money donated is spent directly on the cats and their welfare. CAT 1977’s policy is to help feral cats by limiting their numbers through neutering and returning to site, by providing veterinary care where necessary, and by finding homes for kittens and tame stray cats. The charity is totally against killing for expediency.

The Centre for Policy on Ageing, established in 1947 by the Nuffield Foundation, has a long and distinguished record as an independent charity promoting the interests of older people through research, policy analysis and the dissemination of information. The Centre aims to raise awareness of issues around all aspects of ageing and to support good practice. Its overarching focus is to discover and advocate what older people themselves want and need. An important and unique aspect of the Centre’s work is to act as a hub to encourage the creative exchange of thinking and information on ageing issues. A key element of this work is making knowledge on ageing issues widely accessible to share learning and underpin policy initiatives to support older people. CPA collaborates with national and local government, practitioners, the academic community, voluntary groups and older people to sustain a network of learning around ageing.

Chance For Childhood, Westmead House, Westmead, Farnborough, UK, GU14 7LP

Chance for Childhood is an award-winning charity working in Africa to support the most vulnerable children, such as street children, disabled children, children affected by conflict and kids behind bars. Our vision is of a world where no child is forgotten! We work with and strengthen the capacity of African visionary community leaders to implement effective, locally-relevant projects. This enables us to focus on ‘hard to reach’ children, both in terms of their complex needs (e.g. street children with learning difficulties) and location (e.g. urban violent slums or remote rural areas). Together we make ideas and impact both sustainable and scalable to protect, educate and empower even more of the world’s most disadvantaged children.
