Adults who are not volunteering within a section, or not meeting for adventurous activities will not be expected to complete First Response. Rules for first aid on activities will not be changing, and first aid provision should continue to be factored into risk assessments.  


Volunteers who will now have to complete First Response in their Section role will have a transition period to complete the learning, based on when they started volunteering and their current learning requirements. You can read more about this change and the transition periods in our blog from Colin Davidson, Assistant UK Commissioner for People (Learning).
