How We Work

Why do you need to have Physical First Aid Training?

The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 require employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to ensure their employers receive immediate attention should they become injured or taken ill at work.

The number of first aiders in your place of work depends on how many people there are, as well as the risk level of the primary activities. We host open courses covering the adult and paediatric sectors across the UK and can travel to your place of work to deliver courses to your workforce. If you need help choosing a course, check out this handy guide.

Why commission Mental Health First Aid training?

A review of mental health and employers, commissioned by the Government and published in 2017, looked at the impact of poor mental health on businesses and the UK economy. Thriving at Work: The Stevenson/Farmer review of mental health and employers, outlines how employers can better support the mental health of all people currently employment, enabling them to remain and thrive in employment. It highlights how investing in mental health at work is good for business and productivity.

By working with us, society benefits.

We have delivered front line first aid training to organisations across the UK for 10 years. By working with us, organisations understand that we use our profits to deliver these same courses but to vulnerable and disadvantaged people in our society. We believe that all people should have access to these lifesaving skills regardless of their financial or situational limitations.

  • Organisations can fulfil CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) aims by sponsoring a place, or a full course to give a vulnerable group of people the same access to the same course but in the community.
  • Your money contributes directly to the work that we are doing in the community.
  • We have worked hard to establish a reputation of providing impactful and professional training to businesses with return rates, feedback and testimonials to that effect.

Alongside our physical and mental health first aid training, we can provide short presentations, talks and workshops to explore how you could implement this training into your organisation making it bespoke, impactful and above all relevant.

Take a look at our recently published Impact Report for an overview of the social impact we are having.

Our Community Engagement

Our purpose is to empower people to save lives. First Aid, physical and Mental Health should be a skill that is accessible to everybody regardless of financial or social limitations.

We live and work within our purpose by engaging with socially conscious organisations who believe that community engagement is the way to access members of society who wouldn’t normally access this service. We do this by working alongside these organisations who are already engaged with our target beneficiary demographic.
