OneStonegrove and the surrounding area includes the community centre, St Peter's Church, nursery, school and residential housing. In addition to the many community events held at the centre and Church, members of the local community walk, ride or drive past the centre to the school, use the outside play area and the youth clubs and after school sessions at the centre.
The OneStonegrove centre is very well used by many adults and children and all those who use and pass would benefit from knowing there is a defibrillator in the area. We’d greatly appreciate your support to help us install one outside the OneStonegrove Centre, which would be readily accessible by the local community.
This service would also provide free monthly online training sessions for anyone and we'd actively encourage local residents to get involved.
Any additional funds raised past the target would go towards additional CPR related training and services for the community.
What we'll deliver:
- A externally located defibrillator (AED) accessible 24/7
- Additional CPR-related services and training for any additional funds past target
Why it's a great idea:
This project will provide an accessible defib (AED) and trained staff from the Centre and local residents and parents to assist in the event of someone suffering from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) in the area.
This will benefit:
- local residents
- local school children and parents/guardians
- visitors and users of the centre including play groups and youth clubs, and volunteers
- Church visitors
- all other community members or visitors to the community
Steps to get it done:
- Purchase and install the defibrillator
- Purchase/provide additional CPR-related services and/or training if we exceed our target
- 100,000 deaths from SCA occur each year in the UK.
- 270 children die in the UK every year after suffering a SCA at school.
- 70% of SCA occur outside of a hospital environment.
- 50% increase in surviving a SCA with CPR. 33% increase in victim’s chance of survival when an AED is used.
- 90-95% of SCA Victims will die without immediate treatment.
- If an AED is used and effective CPR is performed within 3-5 mins of SCA victim’s chance of survival increase from 6% to 74%.
- The emergency services average response time to a cardiac event incident in an urban area is 11 minutes.
- For every minute that goes by where a victim of SCA does not receive treatment, their chance of survival decreases by 10-14%.
- Only 22% of people in the UK would be confident of performing CPR on a stranger.
