Harvey Girls and Dads 4 Dads have been able to offer Paediatric First Aid training to all of their service users last week thanks to funding from several County Councillors. Star Training ran the training via Vikki Ferguson which included paediatric life support, recovery position, choking, bleeding, burns, seizures, recognition of meningitis and anaphylaxis. The session includes information delivered by a trainer with opportunity to practice in a safe none pressurised environment.

It is with thanks to County Councillors Shelagh McKiernan (pictured), Conor Wileman, Ron Clarke and Peter Davies that these sessions were able to be ran due to their generosity with their funding.

Ian North, Development Manager stated, “This is a great opportunity to give our clients very important life skills that will stay with them for many years. All service users who meet the standards will gain a certificate, this will also help them to be a positive person with the community.”
