UK Coaching’s Sudden Cardiac Arrest Digital Toolkit: Learn to Be Quick, Smart and Restart a Heart

Sudden Cardiac Arrest can happen to anyone, anytime, anyplace, with 60,000 people having a sudden cardiac arrest in the community every year in the UK. Sadly, only 1 in 10 survive. However, if effective action is taken within the first minute, it can treble chances of survival.

Our partner, UK Coaching, has recently launched a free life-saving free digital learning toolkit, which will help you gain the knowledge and confidence to respond quickly and appropriately in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest. It has been funded by Sport England and developed in collaboration with Resuscitation Council, St John Ambulance and Joe Humphries Memorial Trust.

The toolkit includes:

  • practical information and advice
  • an immersive scenario-based eLearning course
  • a series of high impact and informative videos
  • insightful interviews and compelling written features with survivors, their coaches, and victims’ families
  • signposting to further support.

We encourage anyone involved in sport and physical activity – including coaches, personal trainers, club organisers, volunteers, parents, participants and spectators  – to access this life-saving learning.

YOU can make a difference YOU can save a life.
