Community organisations can register interest in the Department of Health & Social Care’s £1 million Community Automated External Defibrillators Fund.
Community defibrillators can save lives by providing 24-hour access to a defibrillator to treat someone who is having a heart attack. Defibrillation is the only method of treating a heart attack, and for every minute that someone in cardiac arrest does not receive defibrillation, their chances of survival fall by 7-10%.
The fund aims to support 2000 new community defibrillators across England, and applicants will be required to raise ~£750 in match funding. CCARA will be registering and reaching out to local community groups and businesses to find a suitable location. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in hosting a defibrillator.
