Restart a Heart is a designated yearly day of action with the aim to teach vital life-saving cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) skills to as many people as possible.

This year, Restart a Heart is going global! For the first time, it will be called World Restart a Heart under the oversight of ILCOR – with support from resuscitation councils covering America (North, Central and South), Canada, South Africa, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, as well as Europe. Once again, it will take place on 16 October, although events will occur on and around that date.

In 2017 we brought young people together up and down the country to learn how to save lives. Restart a Heart Day 2017 saw us partner once again with the British Heart Foundation, British Red Cross, St John Ambulance and all of UK ambulance services to train a minimum of an incredible 195,000 young people in life saving CPR. We also encouraged private first aid training providers and Fire & Rescue to get involved and host events. See what we did in more detail.

This year, we aim to train over 200,000 people!
