Welsh Hearts Society

Cardiac arrest can affect anyone - from young athletes to OAPs. It is thought 1/500 people have an underlying heart condition they don't know about. More widespread knowledge of CPR and how to use a defibrillator, more accessible defibrillators and heart screening can help save lives. As a society, we will continue the work of the Welsh Hearts charity, within the university. 

We will:

- Teach CPR and basic life support skills to the student population. 

- Hold regular non-alcoholic and alcoholic fundraising events to fundraise for more defibrillators and heart screening across Wales. 

- Advertise free heart screening to the university's sportspeople. 

- Provide volunteering opportunities for students passionate about saving lives to develop their skills and CV. 

Interested in helping? It's only £2 to join, which will go towards helping teach more students the skills they need to save a life. Being a member means you'll hear first about any of our fundraising events and opportunity to help at future teaching sessions.
