Award Winning First Aid Classes across the UK

As seen on dragon's den

Mum of six, Kate Ball initially started Mini First Aid in 2014 from her kitchen table in Leeds, offering high quality baby & child first aid classes to parents and carers. Demand grew and Kate saw the potential for growth, so she started franchising the business in 2015. In 2021, BBC Dragon’s Den star Sara Davies, also saw the huge potential in Mini First Aid and she came on board as an investor and adviser. Mini First Aid is now a multi-award-winning organisation and has almost 70 franchises nationwide.

Meet The Trainers

Katie McCandless

Hi I’m Katie and a mum to 5 year old twin girls. I have worked as an operating department practitioner for over 20 years in both the NHS and private sector. I have been involved in many emergency situations within my work life, involving both adults and children. Being a parent myself, I realise how frightening it can be when dealing with poorly children, so I’d love to be able to take at least one bit of stress away from parents by arming them with the knowledge, skills and confidence needed to deal with emergency situations.

Katherine Tarr

Hi I’m Katherine. I’ve been a nanny for over 20 years and worked with babies as young as a few days old up to teenagers. I’ve worked in school and nurseries and also private home environments so have seen my fair share of bumps and scrapes, coughs and colds! Fortunately I’ve not had to deal with anything life threatening but having the knowledge in case of an emergency has given myself and the parents I work for peace of mind.
