The British Red Cross is working with local community groups, charities, retirement homes etc, to deliver some basic first aid skills relevant to the participants. The sessions are free and are delivered at your venue. Generally they are approximately two hours but this can be altered to suit.
The sessions are informal and interactive allowing participants to freely ask questions and giving them the information which is relevant. Topics covered are based on the needs of the group, thereby making it useful, with the aim of improving people’s confidence in an emergency situation. They can also run the sessions as a talk as some groups like to have a guest speaker at coffee mornings/evenings etc.
Any groups interested in this training should contact Nikki Willis, Adult Education Coordinator on 07803 013232, 0191 2334183, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
