St John Cymru LogoEach September, St John Cymru Wales offer local communities across Wales the opportunity to attend a free 2-hour training session to learn simple techniques which could help to save someone’s life.

Just 1 in 5 people know what to do in an emergency and over 60% of people in Wales lack the confidence to help someone experiencing a cardiac arrest.

Every year thousands of people die in situations where first aid could have given them a chance to live, that’s why, as Wales’ leading first aid charity, St John Cymru Wales believe first aid should be available for everyone, whenever and wherever you need it.

St John Cymru Wales need your help to change this by learning first aid and becoming a potential lifesaver. That's why each September they offer local communities across Wales the opportunity to join one of their free 2-hour training sessions to learn simple techniques which could help to save someone’s life.

Their First Aid Awareness sessions give people the knowledge and confidence to deal with an emergency situation. The session covers the following scenarios:

  • How to manage an incident
  • How to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
  • Treating an unresponsive casualty
  • What to do if someone is choking
  • How to treat severe bleeding

You’ll also be awarded a St John Cymru certificate to acknowledge your new lifesaving skills. Empower yourself and your local community by sparing just 2 hours to learn lifesaving first aid skills this September!
