First Aid Course for Volunteers

(Bedfordshire)

A 3 year Paediatric First aid course for 36 volunteers to gain confidence in dealing with any emergency situation that may arise when working with families with young children. Currently we have 125 volunteers supporting 256 families and 585 children.

Our goals:

  • To give volunteers life long skills paediatric first aid and improving the health and welfare of families and children in an emergency situation.
  • Volunteers will gain knowledge and confidence around emergency situations
  • Families will have enhanced support knowing that the volunteer has been trained in First Aid and would be able to recognise an emergency situation, particularly in involving a child.
£5k project Currently ranked in

How we will achieve our goals

We would hire a trainer from Total Care to deliver First Aid training. The course would be held at our office which is convenient for volunteers and we would monitor the confidence of the trained volunteers pre and post the course.Using out office makes it easier for volunteers to attend as we can be flexible in timings that are convenient for all.

Where the money will go

Increase competency and knowledge of parent volunteers to use First Aid when needed and make for a safer community. Increased social cohesion as volunteers recognise that First Aid is a skill that can be learned and used to benefit all, but in particular with disabled children and/ or disabled adults. Parents are encouraged to go First Aid courses

    I believe this is a very worthwhile project as, potentially it gives life long skills I used my own training – from my youth only last weekend

    The life of one of my colleagues was saved because two people who were in the room at time were able to perform CPR until the ambulance arrived.
