Getting started

Setting up a school first aid club is a great way for students and staff to come together to raise awareness of the importance of first aid and learn life saving skills.

Establish a purpose for your first aid club

Establishing a purpose for your club will help with getting people involved. Here are some questions to get you thinking:

  • What do you want your club to achieve?
  • What will be the benefits of your club to students, staff, and the school?
  • How does the club fit in with your school's priorities?

The benefits of setting up a first aid club:

  • Both students and staff can learn life saving skills.
  • It's a great way for students to develop leadership and team work skills.
  • It can bring together staff who wouldn't usually work together.
  • You can mould your activities to suit your students and staff.
