A basic knowledge of emergency first aid can save lives.
The Heartstart volunteering project teaches children and adults vital lifesaving skills and spreads first aid awareness across Greater Manchester. You will be part of a group of trained student volunteers who will work together to deliver basic first aid sessions in local community settings, including schools, university halls and youth clubs.
Students will be expected to commit to attending one full day of training and to deliver a minimum of five training sessions in the community. Staff from the Volunteering and Community Engagement Team will be on hand throughout the year to book sessions in and provide support to the Heartstart team. All Heartstart volunteering is counted towards the Manchester Leadership Programme and Stellify Award volunteering hours.
Details for this volunteering project in 2020/21 are yet to be confirmed and more information will be communicated here in the next few weeks. Please check back soon for more information on how to get involved in 2020/21.
