StreetGames Support for National Campaign

St John Ambulance, the British Heart Foundation, and the British Red Cross have joined forces to launch Every Child a Lifesaver, a campaign to make first aid compulsory in all state-funded secondary schools. Too many people die needlessly where simple first aid could have saved them, but if every child had the opportunity to learn these skills before leaving school, some of those lives could be saved.

On 20 November, the Emergency First Aid Education Bill will have its second reading in Parliament and it’s our best chance of making first aid compulsory before the next General Election in 2020. Members of the public are being urged to visit everychildalifesaver.org/action to call on their MP to vote in support of first aid in schools.

StreetGames is looking to get behind this campaign we are interested to see if the network would like to get involved too.  What St Johns Ambulance has suggested is that You can ask your MP to turn up in Parliament on 20 November and support the Emergency First Aid Bill. They need 100 MPs to turn up on the day and show their support for compulsory first aid education in all state-funded secondary schools.

A quick way to show your support is through http://everychildalifesaver.org.uk/  It takes just a few minutes, and sends an email directly to ask your MP to support #firstaidinschools
