Restart a Heart Day

Restart a Heart Day banner


Every year, we lead a fantastic group of organisations in delivering Restart a Heart Day [link], a campaign that encourages the public to learn CPR skills, so they are prepared to help in an emergency.

In 2019, 291,000 people were trained in CPR. We will be unveiling our plans for the 2020 event soon.

Join our community, and spread the word

We want everyone in the UK to feel the impact of our work – whether it’s as a member of the public who has learnt CPR through our learning tools, as someone who felt empowered to make a CPR decision because of ReSPECT, or if it’s as a healthcare professional who relies on our clinical guidance to deliver excellence at work.

You can help us make that impact by encouraging others to join us on our mission to save lives, and by sharing our social media posts to help us raise awareness.
