Kids Corner: family first aid challenge

Kids Corner is the place to find fun activities to help fill the long days of lockdown.

Age Guide: the whole family

This is one for the whole family to complete over a number of days. Ensure your family are putting safety first by learning basic first aid skills and knowledge. This is a fantastic downloadable resource compiled by Act Fast First Aid Training in the UK so remember to substitute Australian emergency numbers.
