Parent's Groups

These small, friendly parent's groups are a great way to meet new people and learn new skills. This six week  First Aid training course is run regularly throughout Cheshire with the emphasis on parent's learning Paediatric First Aid skills and gaining confidence to look after a sick, choking or unconscious child. At the end of this course you will have an accredited Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid and more importantly you will have gained the confidence and knowledge needed to thrive as a new parent.
