THE EPICENTRE TO OFFER PUBLIC FIRST AID COURSES WITH 10% OFF STANDARD FEES

The EpiCentre at Haverhill has teamed up with The Bridge First Aid to offer first aid courses to members of the public and local businesses.  The courses will be invaluable for any business that follows HSE guidance for physical first aid at work or those who want to take active steps to support mental health at work too.

Dates reserved for physical first aid to take place at the EpiCentre innovation centre adjacent to the Spirit of Enterprise roundabout in Haverhill are:

  • April 24th
  • May 5th
  • May 22nd
  • June 26th

Dates will follow for mental health first aid. The Bridge First Aid is offering a 10% introductory discount off the standard fees. Add code: EPICENTRE for the discount on the Bridge First Aid website: www.thebridgefirstaid.co.uk

Centre Manager, Kelly Boosey, says: “We are delighted to announce this tie-up with The Bridge as part of our drive to place the EpiCentre at the centre of the Haverhill community providing essential support as the country comes out of lock down as well as being part of our ‘back to business’ drive for growing companies.”

The Bridge founder Jenny White, says: “Our courses are aimed at individuals such as nannies, carers and teachers who do not have the backing of bigger organisations that will finance such training, as well as small growing businesses that may not realise, they have a duty of care to support their employees’ health, safety and wellbeing.”

“In addition to physical first aid, the issue of mental well-being has come strongly to the fore during the COVID-19 pandemic with new ways of working, home schooling and relationship challenges exacerbating stress, so at The Bridge mental and physical health are treated equally,” adds White.
