Insurance and first aid

First Aid

When taking groups out, a specific member of staff must have a recognised first aid qualification.  Larger events will require the presence of a first aid area and services such as that offered by St John’s Ambulance.  The following organisations offer courses for emergency first aid or can be present to deliver first aid at your event.
