My name is John, and I live in Cumbria with my family. I also run a freelance training business called JRA Training and Consulting, which works largely with adults who work with children. I have been involved in First Aid in one way or another for almost thirty years now and I have been working with children, young people, and families for more than twenty. I am a fully qualified First Aid instructor, working with NUCO Training, MHFA England, and others. Check out the JRA training site for the full range of products we deliver, including other First Aid Courses in Cumbria. Little Bear First Aid is about giving families a bit of help and confidence.
