Learn first aid to help those most in need

Due to a person’s health, circumstances or age, they may be more at risk of a first aid emergency. It's vital that the people closest to them have the knowledge and confidence to act.

We work with organisations that support older people, homeless people and people living with drug and alcohol addiction. We provide tailored first aid education for the specific first aid situations they may face.
