Award Winning First Aid Classes

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

Lell Hawney

Hi, I'm Lell, Mummy to two little boys Fletcher & Fraser. Prior to having children, I worked in central London where I was the Workplace First Aider for two large corporate companies. However, I decided to become a First Aid Trainer after attending a Baby & Child first aid class whilst pregnant. I experienced a horrible accident with my eldest son when he was just 9mths old. Knowing First Aid enabled me to respond quickly, applying the correct methods required. Medical staff stated this has prevented my son from having long-term issues. This gave me the drive to train and pass on this valuable knowledge to other parents and carers. I look forward to seeing you in class x
