Caring for Children

St John Ambulance is the nation’s leading first aid charity and teaches first aid to more people than any other organisation in the United Kingdom. Each year, more than 800 000 people take part in a St John Ambulance first aid training course but in the general population, fewer than one in ten people is trained in first aid. Nothing is more tragic than a life lost needlessly and every year, up to 150 000 people die in situations where first aid may have provided a vital lifeline. St John Ambulance firmly believes that no one should ever die because they required first aid but did not receive it, and the individuals that they train regularly make the difference between a life saved and a life lost. 
St John Ambulance runs regular training courses the length and breadth of the nation for members of the general public and employees in various sectors. Although first aid is essential in any environment, it is particularly important for those working with young children. St John Ambulance’s paediatric first aid courses are designed for anyone working with children up to 8 years old, or students working their way towards completion of an NVQ in Childcare and Education. This crucial course will teach you the vital skills which will allow you to deal with accidents and emergencies involving children. It covers all essential aspects including first aid kit, action planning, resuscitation, dealing with sprains ad burns and much, much more. Please contact St John Ambulance today and book yourself a spot on your nearest course – it could make the difference between saving a life and losing a life.
