Free first aid training for community groups

Would your group, volunteers or community have the skills to cope in a crisis?

The British Red Cross works with organisations and community groups who support people who are at risk and would have the greatest impact from a first aid intervention, including:

  • People living with issues around drug and alcohol usage.
  • Adults over 65 who are at more risk of slips, trips and falls.
  • People who are homeless or rough sleepers and at risk of injury.

The tailored first aid sessions provide people with the skills and confidence to help in a first aid emergency.

The sessions provide:

  • Effective, easy to learn first aid education in a relaxed and informal style.
  • We provide relevant first aid skills tailored to the needs of the group.
  • We break down the barriers to helping others.
  • We build confidence and willingness to help in a first aid emergency.
  • They are fully funded – there is no cost to you.

There are also sessions for young people on first aid and refugee awareness.
