FREE ‘Bystander CPR in the Community’ Workshop hosted by Lives

Discover a wide range of inspiring volunteering opportunities on Saturday 9th March, 10am-2pm, at the Social Care Exchange’s Spring Volunteering Expo. Meet regional charities as well as learning new skills during a series of inspiring workshops.

We’re excited to announce the second workshop taking place - ‘Bystander CPR in the Community’ - hosted by Lives, the Lincolnshire charity who deliver vital care in those first critical moments. Lives supports 700+ highly trained and dedicated volunteers and this interactive workshop offers the chance to gain vital skills, confidence and knowledge.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) happens around 30,000 times a year in the UK making it one of the UK's biggest killers.  The potential for saving a life is dependent upon time; the faster medical help can be obtained the better the chance of survival. Clinical studies suggest you have less than 5 minutes from the onset of the event to save the patient’s life and the chance of survival decreases by up to 10% per minute. In this fascinating 30-minute workshop, you will learn the life-saving skills needed to perform CPR in the community.

Kirsty Raywood, Head of Sales at Lives, says “We feel that it is vitally important for as many people in the community to have the skills to recognise when someone is in cardiac arrest and the confidence to act quickly with CPR to give the person the best chance of survival.
