Stuck for ideas for that perfect Christmas present?

Then why not give the gift of a Family First Aid Course that could potentially save the lives of your loved ones. This certificated half day course is for anyone wishing to learn first aid for the family and you can book the course and pop the details into a card as the perfect present this Christmas.

In an emergency situation it is critical that basic first aid can be delivered with confidence. Every parent dreads a serious injury for their child and basic first aid training could make a life-saving difference.  From research it is known that Scottish parents are poorly equipped to deliver potentially life-saving first aid to save their child in a medical emergency. 45% of Scottish parents would not be confident of knowing what to do if their 10 year old child was choking and the greatest fears have been identified as head injury, choking, drowning, and burns.

The Family First Aid course is ideal for families – children, parents, grandparents and anyone who does babysitting – to learn first aid together. It addresses the greatest fears of parents as identified in our research and provides the skills to help each other in an emergency or when general accidents happen around the house.

Course content includes:

  • Safety at home, emergency contacts and primary survey
  • Recovery position
  • Choking in Adults, Children and Babies
  • Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)
  •  Burns
  •  Wounds and Bleeding
