Community Lifesavers | CPR & defibrillator Training

Community Lifesavers CIC is a Kent-based social action not-for-profit project run by trained volunteers. We deliver free training in CPR and using defibrillators to Year 7 students in schools, communities, clubs, and businesses, proudly turning bystanders into lifesavers.

80% of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests happen in the home. With immediate action bystanders can triple the chances of saving a life. Only 1 in 10 out of hospital cardiac arrests survive in the UK; in Norway 4 in 10 survive. A factor for this is young people learning these lifesaving skills at school.

A lifesaving defibrillator

We are based in East Kent and have focused on, successfully delivering our unique, free, one-hour awareness sessions to over 1400 students in 2023 to Year 7 Secondary schools.  

We also help the community with community groups like scouts and squash clubs; anyone can become a lifesaver.

Our Aims:

Train the public turning bystanders into lifesavers.

Train Year 7 students in quality CPR and defibrillator use.

Aid the facilitation of defibrillators in the community and provide support concerning installation, training, and maintenance of defibrillators.

Identify areas where a defibrillator needs to be in the community.

Many Companies like BCS Business Computer Solutions EO run a volunteer programme for their teams. They pay their staff five days per year to work within the community as volunteers. We were lucky enough to have Aidan, Josh and Ash join us this year at our Year 7 initiative.
