First aid partnership in Wales

PACEY Cymru has teamed up with training provider Reactive First Aid to offer accredited Paediatric First Aid training in Wales.

This training meets the best practice guidelines for first aid training promoted by PACEY. These are that the training:

  • Caters for practitioners caring for children in the absence of their parents 
  • Be for a minimum of 12 hours 
  • Covers what to include in a first-aid kit for babies and children 
  • Demonstrates resuscitation techniques using models of babies and children, and gives practitioners a chance to practise on models of each age group 
  • Includes how to record accidents and incidents appropriately.
  • Meets the requirements of CSSIW in Wales

Claire Protheroe, PACEY's Direct Services Manager for Wales said "We are excited to be working with Reactive First Aid in Wales to support the access to, and delivery of, high quality first aid training that meets the needs of childcare and early years professionals."

Trystan Davies, Director of Reactive First Aid added "We are looking forward to working with PACEY. At Reactive First Aid we believe our trainers' real life experiences will help childcare and early years professionals feel more confident to apply their first aid skills in a life threatening emergency or support anyone in need of medical treatment."
