Let's save lives

Friends of Broadmeadow By Friends of Broadmeadow

5 primary school children a week suffer a cardiac arrest, at Broadmeadow we have children with complex health needs. We want to provide a defibrilator.

Wolverhampton Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

For the protection of our children and the community we want to provide a defibrilator to maintain life should the unthinkable happen and an individual goes into cardiac arrest near our school site. Currently we are not aware of a machine in our vicinity and know the right thing to do would be to provide one.

What we'll deliver:

  • provide a defibrilator to be stored at Broadmeadow Special School
  • hold staff awareness session so that individuals feel confident to use the defib should the need arise

Why it's a great idea:

Health is essential to all of us, we all need to live a healthier lifestyle- however we cannot predict what might happen and sometimes people have underlying conditions that they are unaware of. Nationally statistics show that cardiac arrest in children is on the increase and this is scary. We want to have the confidence that we would be able to give any of our children, parents or staff members the very best chance of living should this terrible predicament blight them.

Steps to get it done:

  • £1000 will buy the unit
  • £300 will pay for training for 12 staff to use it- although this is just to boost confidence as training is not required
