British Red Cross free first aid apps

As some of you may be aware, we at Carers Trust Solihull host digital first-aid training sessions in partnership with the British Red Cross. The feedback we have received from carers has shown that although these courses are invaluable, the time needed to join needs is a little restrictive. We understand you are very busy throughout your day with other obligations, however, this is vital information and can help save a life.

Thankfully, the British Red Cross also see how flexibility in providing first aid training is a priority. That’s why they have two apps for you to download to your mobile phone or tablet. One to provide general first aid and another focussed providing first aid to children and babies. 

They other free training and guidance, providing you with life-saving advice on common scenarios, such as choking, heart attack, seizures, and burns.
