First aid advice for parents  

If you're a parent, grandparent, a carer or if you work with children, learning first aid will give you confidence to save a life when it really counts.

With our first aid advice for parents, we cover a whole range of different conditions and techniques – from knowing how to put a child or infant in the recovery position if they are unresponsive but breathing, to giving cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) if they’re not.

This section covers first aid advice for many different conditions, from dealing with a choking child or baby, to recognising the signs of meningitis and much more.
