Save a Life for Scotland

Every year over 3,500 people around Scotland are treated by the Ambulance Service after having a cardiac arrest. Unfortunately only around 1 in 10 people will survive.

Starting CPR saves lives.

Doing CPR can at least double the chances of survival. So let’s be ready. We’ve asked you to say ‘I’ll do it’ and be one of 500,000 people in Scotland to get CPR ready. Together we have reached our goal, a whole year early! This is an amazing accomplishment but the Save a Life for Scotland partnership is not slowing down as we enter our last year!

Scotland, it’s a funny time. Everything Is different but everything is still the same. You still speak to your granny but you chat to her on Zoom. You still go to the shops but everyone’s in a mask. Do you know what else is the same but different? CPR.


CPR Kid Researcher

It’s the start of a new school year and although things might be a little bit different, CPR is just as important as ever. We already know that kids are the best teachers, so we’ve made some tools to help kids “pay it forward” and teach others their CPR skills.
