Save a Life Cymru was established to encourage people across Wales to learn CPR and to feel confident in using a defibrillator if someone has a cardiac arrest at home.

Every year over 6,000 people will have a cardiac arrest in the community in Wales, and the survival rate is less than 5%.  Save a life Cymru aims to significantly increase this survival rate.  

The Touch a Life campaign is focused on teaching people the basic skills of  CPR and defibrillation – due to covid-19 this is currently available as an online training tool. You can also find out more at
