Young Lifesavers Programme

Every year thousands of people die in situations where first aid could have made a difference. St John Cymru Wales believes that everyone should be equipped with vital life saving skills which could be the difference between life and death in an emergency situation.

It's never too early to start learning first aid. That's why we've developed our Young Lifesavers award scheme for young people between the ages of 7 to 16 years.

As part of the scheme we offer free, engaging teaching resources and information on where first aid fits in the National Curriculum. When you register on the programme, you'll find all the information you need online to run a Young Lifesaver course in your school or club.

We may also be able to loan equipment to support your school or club with your training.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with our team on 0345 678 5646 or e-mail

Register your school or club for the Young Lifesavers Award Scheme
