Scottish First Aid Week

Scottish First Aid Week: 18 – 24 November 2019

Our theme for this years Scottish First Aid Week (18 – 24 November 2019) is ‘Creating a Nation of Life-savers’, continuing our campaign to persuade politicians, parents and young people of the value of learning first aid from an early age.  By equipping children and young people with these skills, we create an army of potential life-savers able to step in to make a huge difference to their families and local communities.

Keep up-to-date with all the great first aid talks, demonstrations and events planned for Scottish First Aid Week by following our Facebook page here.

We would like to thank everyone who helps make Scottish First Aid Week such a success.  Special thanks to our dedicated volunteers who are the lifeblood of our organisation – we couldn’t do it without them.

In a crisis it is vital that first aid is delivered with confidence, and Scottish First Aid Week is about encouraging people throughout Scotland to learn first aid skills which could help in an emergency and even save a life.  No one should die because they needed first aid and didn’t get it. It is surprising just how often knowing even the most basic first aid can make a difference to a difficult situation. Inevitably it is the public who are first at the scene of an accident, and those vital few minutes could make all the difference before the emergency services arrive.

Contact St Andrew’s First Aid on 0141 332 4031 to find out how you can get involved or help to fundraise.

Together, we can build a safer Scotland!
