British Red Cross FREE First Aid offer

11th December 2018

The Red Cross Adult Education team work with organisations and community groups in South Yorkshire who support:

  • Those living with, or in contact with people with issues around drug and alcohol
  • Those who are at risk of becoming or are in contact with people who are homeless or rough sleepers and at risk of injury or sudden illness
  • Those who are in contact with or are adults over 65 who are at risk of slips, trips and falls.

Our FREE sessions have the clinical language removed to ensure that it is easy to learn and therefore easy to remember in an emergency. Sessions typically last 2 hours, but flexible depending on number of skills taught, and are for up to 15 people.
