Have you heard about us and would like to volunteer your services? Read on to find out what membership would involve.
We are more than happy to take membership enquiries from doctors, dentists (with some Maxillofacial experience) nurses and paramedics-all that we ask is that you have had some experience of dealing with the consequences of violence in the course of your career. We find that pupils respond best to those who can speak from personal experience. You will often find yourself in the classroom with a 'medic' from a totally different specialty.What would membership involve?
As a member of MAV you will have the opportunity to speak to school pupils (usually 2nd year) about the dangers of "knife crime". Each visit lasts an hour. There is a structured lesson plan which involves showing a DVD called "Your Choice" lasting 18 minutes followed by group discussions then a summary, there is very little preparation involved. On most occasions your lesson will be along with another health care professional. We would generally ask that you are able to commit to three or four school visits per year, if you choose schools near to your home or work the time involved can be minimal but you could make a big difference.
