Little LifeSavers Created

Little LifeSavers is a charitable organisation that teaches Basic Life Support skills, including CPR, to schoolchildren across the UK. It is free of charge and available to children aged between 9 to 13 years who are in a school setting.

Delivered entirely by our adult volunteer instructors; Little LifeSavers provides the framework for the public to learn simple bystander CPR skills. They then teach those lifesaving skills to local school children.

It is free of charge and available to children aged between 9 and 13 years who are in a school setting.

You can help us deliver the important steps of CPR Traning by volunteering with us:

72% of cardiac arrests happen in the home - would you or your family know what to do?You can help us save lives today AND tomorrow.

HALF of all cardiac arrests are witnessed by a bystander. Learn what to do, in case it's you

Why is CPR so Important?

Approximately 30,000 cardiac arrests occur each year in the UK outside of a healthcare setting. Sudden cardiac arrest can occur in any age group at any time. Immediate CPR provided by bystanders provides the best chance of survival.

I enjoyed it and I liked doing the actual CPR on the models.


The session was extremely well run, the children thoroughly enjoyed it. It was lovely to see the children so engaged. I would highly recommend using this charity for teaching children in school. It was a fantastic workshop, the team ran it so efficiently, the children really enjoyed taking part. It was lovely to all of the children so engaged. The skills are taught in such a clear way. We look forward to doing it again soon.

I really loved it and I wish I could do it when I am grown up.


I really enjoyed doing the CPR, I enjoyed trying me best to do it.

Enjoyed the lifesaving this morning, it was an experience like no other! I feel like I could help someone now.

I feel that now that I’ve done that training I know that out there I don’t need to be worried if something happens to someone because I could help.
Pupil - West Chiltington School
The children were completely engaged and benefited from the training. The training was well delivered and engaging for all.
Teacher Feedback
The opportunity for the pupil’s to experience life-saving techniques ‘hands-on’ was most beneficial because it made the theory real! The team encouraged pupils questions and provided well-considered answers.
Teacher Feedback
Watching the children learn about this important life skill was an absolute pleasure; the instructors pitched the level just right and the children were completely engaged and eager to learn throughout. The session was well-resourced and gave children a real hands-on experience that will no doubt stay with them for a long time to come. Only a week after the training, one of our Year Five pupils put their knowledge into action to help her little sister who was choking on a crisp. Thank you Little Lifesavers for creating a true little lifesaver!
