Life saving first aid skills offered to young people

A housing trust is helping young customers and their parents to learn live saving first aid skills.

Live saving skills for Salford residents

A housing association in Salford, has teamed up with charity Millie's Trust to deliver free first aid training sessions. Children aged eight to sixteen, along with their parents, will learn vital techniques, including treating burns and cuts and performing life-saving CPR.

Millie's trust was set up by parents Joanne and Dan Thompson. Their baby daughter Millie died after choking on food at a nursery in Cheadle Hulme in October 2012. They work with various organisations stressing the importance of first aid as a potential life saver.

One young mum, Charlotte Lovely, told Granada Reports recently how she saved her son Oscar's life after watching a report about Millie's trust here on this website.
