Calling all community groups and schools – learn to Restart a Heart this October

Join thousands of people learning CPR on Restart a Heart Day 2018

On Tuesday 16 October 2018, we’re joining an alliance of organisations all over the world to increase the number of people trained in life saving CPR.

Together with volunteers from ambulance and fire services, we’ll be giving CPR demonstrations in schools, community centres, hospitals and emergency service stations. This is a chance for your school or community group to learn essential skills and become the life savers of the future.

In the United Kingdom, we’re aiming to train a record-breaking 200,000 people with the skills and confidence to help save a life.

Get involved

If your school or community group would like to take part, please register with the Resuscitation Council (UK):

Restart a Heart is organised in partnership by the Resuscitation Council (UK), St John Ambulance, The British Heart Foundation, British Red Cross, Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service, and Yorkshire Ambulance Service. Every UK Ambulance service will take part in the event, along with private training providers.
