Leathers4Lives is a not-for-profit scheme which aims to support future NHS paramedics through donations made to universities and colleges which deliver Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) accredited courses.
In order to practise as a paramedic, you must undertake an HCPC course. During the course of their training, student paramedics must undertake critical training which allows them to respond to motorcycle accidents.
NHS paramedics are often the first on the scene during a motorcycle accident. For many bikers, this could be the difference between a life and death situation.
Having access to motorcycle gear a critical necessity in developing the skills that paramedics need to effectively respond to motorcycle accidents.
The purpose of Leathers4Lives is to recycle worn out and crash-damaged motorcycle gear by distributing it to HCPC accredited courses. This allows for a continuous support of future NHS paramedics in saving bikers lives.
