It's Restart a Heart Day on Tuesday 16 October – a designated day of action that aims to give as many young people as possible the opportunity to learn life-saving first aid skills.
We’ve put together a whole host of activities in our one-hour flexible session to help you teach the first aid skill unresponsive and not breathing. Young people can also learn about an AED (automated external defibrillator), what one is and how to use one. The use of photos, a case study, role play, active learning and discussion questions makes for an interactive and energetic first aid session. By the end of the session, your students should have the confidence and skills to help someone who is unresponsive and not breathing when an AED is available. Download the session plan.
Last year more than 195,000 young people learnt first aid on Restart a Heart Day. This year’s target is 200,000 – can you help to beat it? Find out more about how you can get involved in Restart a Heart Day.
