Danielle Bridge, Founder and CEO
Danielle founded ABC Life Support in 2010 after working for St John Ambulance for a number of years prior to starting a family. Her aim was to set up a first aid training company for all to access. The CIC model fitted her vision to be able to deliver to everybody regardless of their socioeconomic limitations. In 2018 Danielle decided to add Mental Health First Aid training to the portfolio with the same vision, to be able to offer this training to everybody so that the whole of society could benefit from this life-saving information.
Literally thousands of people have benefited from the training that has been delivered with those numbers including parents, young people, corporate businesses, charities and individuals from a number of sectors
