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.

Fran Brooman

Hello. My name is Fran. My husband Ritchie and I are proud parents of two girls, Abigail 16 and Sophie 11, together with my two Border terriers we enjoy the many benefits of living in this beautiful part of the country. I have been a registered dental nurse for over 20 years at a busy dental surgery in Wendover where I also undertook the role of being the practices first aider. Last year I qualified as a first aid instructor and in the past few months I have enjoyed training mostly adults on paediatric first aid. I presently work as a deputy manager at a busy breakfast and after school club in a local primary school. For over 10 years now I have also been a cub leader where I am passionately involved in teaching my cubs some of the many important life skills and of course to gain their first aid badges. I would like to pass on both my knowledge and my experience that I have gained over the years and now provide confident first aid in today's world.

Nicola McKenna

Hi! My name is Nicola and I am the Mini First Aid Trainer for Harrow, Ruislip, Hillingdon, Hayes, Hounslow, Brent and surrounding areas. I am also a EYFS Childcare Provider and have an NVQ level 2 in Childcare. As a Mum of two I fully understand how worrying the early years can be at times as naturally we want to do everything in our power to keep our little ones safe and protected. The early years are such a precious time and I want to help empower Parents, Grandparents and Carers to gain the basic first aid knowledge, skills and confidence they need to keep children safe in an emergency situation.
