save a life september school

We believe everyone should be empowered

to be able to save a life when needed


Our Save a Life September campaign aims to train children and adults alike across Wales vital first aid skills which could be used to one day safe a life. 

We'd love for your school to get involved and help us achieve our goal of a first aider in every home in Wales by organising a free first aid assembly where one of our fully qualified trainers will teach your pupils simple techniques which could one day help to save someone’s life.

Not only does first aid and other lifesaving skills develop a child or young person’s self-confidence and resilience, their understanding of risk also grows. Skills learned also provide key societal benefits through positive social skills and a sense of community responsibility.

Our first aid assemblies help give pupils the knowledge and confidence to deal with an emergency situation and cover the following scenarios:

- How to manage an incident

- How to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)

- Treating an unresponsive casualty

- What to do if someone is choking

- How to treat severe bleeding

In the UK, less than 1 in 10 people survive an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest and nearly a third of UK adults wouldn't have the confidence to intervene if they saw someone in need.

Children in England will be taught CPR and other lifesaving skills from 2020 and in Scotland, 32 local councils have already committed to teaching CPR in their schools.

Don't let Welsh pupils get left behind!
