In a nutshell, about us

Since 2011, Heather has spread her words of wisdom, ‘if its wet, warm and not yours, wear your gloves’, to businesses across the South East of England.

Whilst her teaching career certainly did not start with such a catch phrase, Heather’s job as a nursery school manager back in early 2000’s would have her admit, the same advice would have applied… 

Heather’s path  of first aid stemmed from a fascination with biology, a medical family and a desire to help people. After many years of volunteering as an on-call Community First Responder, Heather decided she wanted to do more. As her children grew, she decided to be brave and step into a new venture – her own business teaching first aid. 

Since then, Assist First Aid has grown to offer flexible, affordable, on-site training to businesses across Sussex, Surrey and the rest of the South East from a range of experienced trainers committed to quality training; and all live by the mantra, ‘if its wet, warm and not yours, wear your gloves’!

Where do we go?

We come to you - from Brighton in the south, Guildford in the west, Epsom to the north and Tunbridge Wells to the east and all in between. If you’re outside of these areas, simply give us a call and we’ll get back to you with options that best suit your business needs or you as an individual.

What will you get?

From every single Assist First Aid course you will get quality training, peace of mind and HSE compliance. We pride ourselves on building confidence of our course attendees so anyone who has been through a course with us is ready to handle an emergency situation at home or in the workplace.

Why choose us?

Our trainers are friendly, fully qualified and professional. They are experienced with practical experience responding to emergency calls as Community First Responders (the first person on the scene of a 999 call, while waiting for an ambulance to arrive).
