First Aid in action!
Importance of First Aid training
Rise youth team took part in First Aid training. This will enable our staff to be able to provide assistance to any person suffering a sudden illness or injury.
Our staff are now trained to provide care to preserve life, prevent the condition from worsening and/ or promote recovery by performing CPR while awaiting for an ambulance, as well as the complete treatment of minor conditions such as applying a plaster to a cut.
Helping to keep pregnant women safe
The photo below shows a demonstration by the instructor and Nina Martin of how to put a pregnant woman in the recovery position. Given 25% of our young women at Kira House come to us for support when pregnant this is important to know, so we can help keep them and their unborn child safe.
First Aid saves lives
First Aid is an essential course to do when working with young people at risk. It’s fantastic that all our staff are trained as First Aiders and are ready to provide assistance when needed.
