Save a Life September, our annual first aid awareness
The Save a Life
September campaign is part of our push to
raise awareness of the importance of first aid
across the UK. It also aims to give people the basic first
aid skills that you might need to save a life.
First aid demonstrations delivered nationwide
Throughout September, we will be giving hundreds of free first aid demonstrations in busy areas,
such as shopping centres and town squares, all around the
country. In the time it takes to do your weekly shop you
could learn how to stop a friend choking or keep a loved one alive
until an ambulance arrives.
Sue Killen, our CEO, said: 'We believe that no one should die
because they needed first aid and didn't get it, which is why we
are running our Save a Life September campaign again.
‘By holding first aid demonstrations across the country, we want
to reach as many people as possible, so that more
people are equipped with the skills to save a life.
‘Anyone who needs first aid should get it, and armed with this
knowledge we can all be the difference between a life lost
and a life saved.'
