The British Red Cross are running free everyday first aid sessions. This is where we go out to community groups for those at risks of homelessness, drug and alcohol as well as over 65s slips, trips and falls and provide 2 hour first aid sessions. This is running through funding of the BRC but it is unsure how long the funding will continue. Do you think this would benefit your group? If so please read the information (below) and get in contact to book a session.
The British Red Cross are currently running fully-funded first aid sessions for different community groups. The Adult Education team work with organisations and community groups (volunteers and service users) who support people that are facing higher risks of needing first aid in particular crises. The three risk groups we currently work with are as follows:
> People living with issues around drug and alcohol usage.
> People who are homeless or rough sleepers and at risk of injury or sudden illness.
> Adults over 65 who are at more risk of slips, trips and falls.
Our sessions have had all of the technical/clinical language removed to ensure that it is easy to learn and therefore easy to remember in an emergency situation. Each session is designed to meet learners’ needs and is tailored to the environment the learner will be in.
What can you expect from our first aid session?
> Effective, easy to learn first aid education in a relaxed and informal style.
> Provide relevant first aid skills tailored to the needs of the group.
> Break down the barriers to helping others.
> Build the confidence and willingness to help in a first aid emergency.
> Typically last 2 hours, but flexible depending on number of skills taught.
> Suitable for groups of up to 15 people.
> Delivered by experienced Red Cross trained educators.
> Delivered at your venue.
> Fully funded – there is no cost to you.
