British Red Cross: First Aid Academy

The British Red Cross will be at The Baby & Toddler Show helping all new and expectant parents learn simple first aid skills.

Did you know that 65% of new parents wished they had learnt first aid before becoming a parent?*

The British Red Cross believes that everybody should have the opportunity to learn essential first aid skills. Head over to the academy for your free first aid taster session and learn vital skills such as how to deal with poisoning, febrile seizures, burns and choking.

Don’t forget to attend the Expert Advice Workshops, where the British Red Cross will be providing first aid advice and tips for babies and children to all new and expectant parents.
