  • Need


    Only one in five people in Wales has basic first aid skills.


    Our short taster sessions are a great way for schoolchildren to learn first aid skills, including: emergency numbers and when to use them, recovery position, CPR and choking.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To create a nation of lifesaving superheroes


    » Provide free first aid courses for schoolchildren in Wales.

    What success will look like

    We are aiming to train thousands of children and young people in 2017

  • Impact


    Providing training in essential first aid skills will mean that the young people can be the difference between life and death in an emergency situation.


    Without additional funding we won't be able to provide free course places for Welsh schoolchildren, please give what you can today.


    Funders will receive monthly updates about this project, plus helpful first aid advice and information about local events.
