Southern Cross partnered with SAHSSI and TAFE Illawarra to run the first of a series of taster fee free courses for our residents and mutual clients. Teacher Lyn was really impressed with the attendance of our First Aid course held at Nowra Family Support who provided free facilities and free childcare. Over 2 days, students learnt practical First Aid Skills, casualty management such as Asthma attacks, allergic reactions and Basic Life Support Skills. The majority of the participants were mums and the knowledge they learnt may help save someone’s life one day. Enrolment was so popular, we ran a second course. Well done everyone!
