Basic first aid
More than one million children under the age of 15 get hurt in accidents in the home every year and a shocking new study has found that 60% of parents don't know basic first aid.

We've put together basic, straightforward first aid advice with the help of St John Ambulance to help you deal with any accidents your little ones or their friends might have in your home. Each is divided into different steps to make it easier and all of them can be printed out and stuck on the fridge for future use.
