Award Winning First Aid Classes across the UK

As seen on dragon's den

Mum of six, Kate Ball initially started Mini First Aid in 2014 from her kitchen table in Leeds, offering high quality baby & child first aid classes to parents and carers. Demand grew and Kate saw the potential for growth, so she started franchising the business in 2015. In 2021, BBC Dragon’s Den star Sara Davies, also saw the huge potential in Mini First Aid and she came on board as an investor and adviser. Mini First Aid is now a multi-award-winning organisation and has almost 70 franchises nationwide.

Meet The Trainers

Lyndsey Anderson

Hi, I’m Lyndsey and I run Mini First Aid classes throughout Edinburgh and the Lothians. As a qualified Midwife, first aid trainer, and mum to two teenage boys I’ve dealt with numerous first aid situations and emergencies. I feel passionate that everyone should know first aid as you never know when something will happen and it’s important that you have the confidence and knowledge to deal with the situation. It's a frightening experience when someone becomes ill or is injured, however our friendly and relaxed classes aim to give you the skills to be able to know what actions to take if faced with a medical emergency.

Andrea Bell

Hi I’m Andrea. I’m a qualified Occupational Therapist, First Aid trainer, previous manual handling trainer, and mum to two young children. I find First Aid training exciting and interesting, and look forward to sharing this passion with you. It's amazing being able to see parents learning and engaging in classes, and leaving feeling knowledgeable and confident that they now have the skills to deal with any first aid situations they come across with their baby or child.

Shivvone Coker

Hi, I’m Shivonne, I was cabin crew for 10 years with the later years spent training and during my time I saw my fair share of accidents onboard, on the ground and in the air. Part of my training included aviation medicine, where I realised my passion for all things medical. I left work to have my two children and my first aid continued dealing with choking, burns, head injuries and of course, a few cuts and grazes on the way. Realising that my family members and many of my new mummy friends had little or no first aid skills - I knew this is where I wanted to pursue my career. I am very enthusiastic about first aid and feel it’s something everyone should know about. To be able to share my knowledge and help others to potentially save lives is very rewarding
