This is a wonderful charity which is helping to save lives every day.
Millie’s Trust was established following the loss of their daughter Millie in a choking incident at nursery in October 2012. It aims to offer access to First Aid Training at minimal cost to everyone who would like it in as many places as possible.
They offer first aid training courses to Organisations, Families, and also to children age 8 to 16 years of age. I have seen a number of items in the news recently about children as young as 5 or 6 preventing their younger sibling from choking, which is absolutely amazing. It proves that young children can learn simple techniques which can save lives.
Millie’s Mark is an accreditation that will be awarded as a special endorsement to childcare providers that go above and beyond the minimum requirements of just one person trained in First Aid being on duty in Nurseries, by having 100% of staff trained in paediatric first aid, and also ensuring that everything learned during the course is kept alive and in the forefront of practioners’ minds so that they are confident, ready and capable.
Millie’s Trust is a Registered Charity
