We believe that venues should be installed with potentially lifesaving equipment such as defibrillators. When a sudden cardiac arrest occurs, the casualty is usually relying on the ambulance service and first responders, and although they try their best, they can be a fair distance away from the scene.

    Charlotte and Craig Saving Hearts Foundation have ensured that every school in their hometown has a defibrillator on site



Facts and Figures

  • There are approximately 100,000 Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrests per year in the UK


  • Approximately 80% of Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrests occur at Home


  • 12 people under the age of 35 die every week due to sudden cardiac arrest in the UK


  • 270 children die in the UK per year after suffering a Sudden Cardiac Arrest at school


  • If a defibrillator is used and effective CPR is performed within 3-5 minutes of cardiac arrest, survival chances increase from 6% to 74%
