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.

Meet The Trainers

Katy Cockburn

Hello, I’m Katy. I am a Mum to 2 young children - Rafferty (3) and Lilah (1). I’ve been a nurse for 20 years, working most recently as an Emergency Nurse Practitioner. Despite being trained and experienced in emergency care, being a Mum has highlighted to me the value of basic first aid knowledge and how it helps to be able to stay calm and manage situations which arise in every day life. Working in urgent care and seeing how the outcome for sick and injured children can be so dependent on how appropriately and quickly they were helped at home, gave me the inspiration to become a children’s first aid trainer. My goal is to teach as many parents, grandparents, carers, and children themselves, how to provide good quality first aid so everyone stands the best chance of recovery. As a working Mum I understand how busy life can be, but I do believe a priority for every parent should be to learn how to help their child when they need it most.
