CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) saves lives. For every minute that passes when someone’s in cardiac arrest, their chances of surviving decrease by 10%.
Starting CPR as soon as possible gives the person the best chance of a good outcome after cardiac arrest.
We work in communities across Scotland to empower as many people as possible to learn how they can save someone’s life with CPR.
Our local teams of volunteers provide free training to groups, schools and workplaces, and at drop-in sessions in communities across the country.
