We have also added 30 extra minutes to answer any specific queries that our families may have (i.e. How to deal with a choking child in a wheelchair, how to administer first aid to a pre-verbal child, etc). To ensure best use of this time, if you have any queries you want to ask at this session, please email me on after booking and I will email them in advance to the trainers.

The course will run 9.15am-4.45pm and there will be lunch provided. When booking, please do let me know of any dietary requirements. Bookings close a week before the event to allow planning.

We apologise – but these courses are not suitable for children and there is no childcare available.
