Talks and demos

Delivered by a First Aid Community Advocate, our talks and demos can provide a general overview of first aid or they can focus on a specific type of first aid, such as dealing with heart attacks. Please specify in your request if there are any first aid topics you would like the talk or demo to cover.


Our bitesize workshops are designed to deliver key aspects of first aid, delivered by our First Aid Community Advocates. While not designed to replace formal first aid training, our workshops ensure more people have access to basic first aid skills. They are a maximum of one hour and half, and will not be assessed.

The types of workshops we offer:

Bitesize first aid

This workshop will equip participants with the ability and knowledge to deal with some key first aid emergencies.

Bitesize first aid for carers

This workshop offers carers a deeper understanding of how to deal with first aid issues relating to the person they care for, as well as an understanding of how to look after themselves.

Bitesize first aid for young parents

This workshop provides basic first aid information for young parents under the age of 25, so that they feel confident to deal with any child-related first aid situations.

Bitesize stick-it

This workshop will provide the participants with the skills they need to deal with gun and knife related injuries. They will also learn how to manage an incident and learn some of the most commonly needed first aid skills.

Bitesize buzz

This workshop is aimed at teaching common injuries or conditions that may be encountered when someone has misused substances.


 Please note that we may need four weeks from the date of your request to arrange a talk, demo or workshop.
