Our Baby First Aid course, run in partnership with the British Red Cross, is designed to build your confidence as a parent or carer in dealing with emergency situations. All of our Baby First Aid courses are facilitated by British Red Cross trainers and provide first aid training for babies under one year old, and older children up to 12 years old. These interactive, confidence-building courses are held locally, and will provide plenty of opportunity to practice techniques and ask questions.
