Our Award-Winning courses:

The training was first rate: instantly memorable. There is a gulf between your provision and other training I took before I discovered you: I am a very willing repeat customer! It really has boosted my confidence. The training room is fabulous too!

I wasn’t sure whether I should go to St John Ambulance or the Red Cross, but then I came across this course – great value for money and really informative. It is a real bonus that Emma can gear it more towards specific needs.

Emma’s second book is being heralded as the ultimate guide to the treatment and prevention of childhood accidents, helping you to identify potential risks and ensure your children stay safe from birth right through to adulthood.

Packed full of real life experiences, anecdotes and sound advice, this book is designed to give you the skills and confidence to let your children develop and flourish, experiencing inevitable minor bumps and bruises, while keeping them safe from more serious mishaps. This book is a must-have for parents, teachers, child minders and anyone looking after children of any age.

Buy now on Amazon to download or in paperback.

Or contact us for bulk enquiries and requests for Emma to speak at your business or event.

Children have an unnerving knack of taking their parents and carers by surprise. Emma’s book places safety in the context of child development, empowering parents to anticipate risk and avoid serious accidents in childhood. She shows how prompt first aid can help minimise the impact of an accident, sharing her practical knowledge and skills.
