About Us

Eastbourne District Scout First Aid Team is more commonly known as "EDSFAT" and is a Scout Active Support Unit operating under the administrative guidance of Eastbourne District. EDSFAT is a Scout Active Support Unit whose role and aim is to provide "First-Aid and Medical support to Scouting events" in East and West Sussex and as well as events throughout the UK.

EDSFAT also supports Scouting by:

  • Helping others improve the safety of young people whilst in their charge.
  • Training others in basic First Aid by running First Aid Courses.
  • Promoting the use of High Visibility Garments and First Aid Equipment.

EDSFAT is made up of adult members of the Scout Association, from throughout the UK, who are either Leaders or members of the Scout Active Support Unit. We operate as a Scout Active Support Unit with a manager and steering group. Members have to regularly attend training sessions, these keep the members up to date with the specialist equipment and help them to build on previously gained skills.

As a Scout First Aid Team we are required to be self funding, which means all our vehicles and equipment have to be paid for by Scouting activities that use us, members donations or fundraising.

All monies raised are used to support Scouting both locally here in Sussex and Internationally through the Jamborees we attend.
