UK Coaching has recently launched a free life-saving free digital learning toolkit, which will help you gain the knowledge and confidence to respond quickly and appropriately in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest. It has been funded by Sport England and developed in collaboration with Resuscitation Council, St John Ambulance and Joe Humphries Memorial Trust.

We encourage anyone involved in sport and physical activity – including coaches, personal trainers, club organisers, referees, volunteers, parents, participants and spectators – to access this life-saving learning.
YOU can make a difference YOU can save a life.
