Free first aid for babies and children course

Brighton and Hove Councils Community Learning team offers a free one day (3h 15m) first aid for babies and children course.

The course is currently offered to both Children’s Centres and schools citywide. The course is also free to community groups who have group members who are:

  • Brighton & Hove resident
  • Unemployed (and in receipt of income related benefits)
  • Looking for work
  • On a low income
  • Have 5 or fewer GCSE’s /below Level 2

The free course covers:

  • Managing burns and scalds
  • How to deal with choking
  • The recovery position
  • Basic life support for children and babies

An optional booklet resource is also supplied at the end of the course at a subsidised cost of £2. Feedback has said that this booklet is extremely useful. Free ‘Key Notes’ handouts will also be available for those who do not buy a resource booklet.

The course runs on either Wednesdays or Thursdays (available dates change from day to day so please always double check for availability) and they aim to run the session so that it starts after drop off and completes before pick up times for school.

Community groups can get this tutor led course for free. You need to supply the venue/room and find a group of between 8 and 12 people to take part.
