Kate, a mum of 6 (including 2 sets of twins), is an entrepreneur and author.  She worked for over 10 years in Learning, Development & HR and when on maternity leave in 2014 set up Mini First Aid.

Kate wanted to change the perception of First Aid Training and make it more accessible and memorable for parents and carers. Thus, their 2-hour class was born. Mini First Aid now trains 1000+ parents carers and children per week in life-saving first aid.

Kate’s first award-winning children’s book ‘The Mini Adventures of Freddie’ teaches basic first aid through a story of Freddie who experiences a number of bumps and scrapes, and most importantly learns to dial 999 in an emergency.

This summer Mini First Aid is launching a safe eating campaign ‘Sit Chop Chew’ designed to educate parents, carers, and children alike on choking awareness and safe eating.  This is supported by the launch of Kate’s second book ‘Sit Chop Chew’.
