First Aid Course

Homeless men and women and volunteers from our drop-in, recently took part in a First Aid training course which was delivered by the Red Cross.

The two hour course was specifically tailored to introduce scenarios which people often encounter or hear about on the street. Everyone learned how to help someone who may be suffering from; unconsciousness, choking, breathing difficulties, heavy bleeding, seizures and also symptoms associated with someone who may have eaten or drunk something harmful.

The course was really well presented, everyone enjoyed it and passed with flying colours each receiving a certificate of learning.
