First Aid TrainingDid you know that a virus can kill a child?

Would you know what to do if your child stopped breathing?

Did you know that if oxygen does not get to the brain within 3 minutes of a child stopping breathing, that serious brain damage is likely?

Would you know what to do if your child choked?

It is suspected that an everyday cold and flu virus attacked Jack's heart and made it stop that morning. Jack was not given CPR until he reached the hospital and this meant that Jack's brain had been starved of oxygen. The lack of oxygen to Jacks brain caused brain damage and all of this lead to this subsequent death.

Brightest Star now provides Paediatric Emergency First Aid Courses to anyone who wants to learn Paediatric emergency life saving skills. As a charity, we are very passionate about raising awareness of life savings skills and Jack’s Mummy has worked with a qualified trainer to build a 3 hour course that covers:

  • CPR
  • CHOKING
  • CONVULSIONS AND SEIZURES
  • DROWNING
  • THE USE OF DEFIBRILLATORS

1st aid coursesWe understand that Paediatric 1st Aid courses can be expensive and therefore we have tried to keep our costs minimal. To book a place on one of our courses, we require a £30 deposit. After your attendance on the course, you can ask for the £30 to be donated to Brightest Star or you can ask for it to be refunded back to you.
