CWLs gain First Aid Qualification at Action on Hearing Loss


Walking In Your Community hosted a First Aid training day for qualified Community Walk Leaders who were yet to obtain their vital First Aid qualification. Community Walk Leaders from across Belfast made the short trip to the home of Action On Hearing to attend this half day event that enabled them to learn essential First Aid skills needed to lead walks under the programme.

In total, 8 participants completed this training course run by the Red Cross. Marketing Officer Nicola Cully commented “This was another successful First Aid course organised by Walking In Your Community. Having this essential qualification will enable Community Walk Leaders to carry out safe walks within their local area which is a crucial part of the scheme.”

Walking In Your Community has another upcoming First Aid training opportunity, Thursday 5th December 2013 at Belfast Activity Centre.
