First aid is the initial assistance or treatment given to a person who is injured or taken ill. The person who provides this help is known as a first aider.
We want there to be first aiders on hand across Wales whenever and wherever an incident occurs, but we know that's not always the case. So we’ve put together these simple first aid advice guides to show you how to treat some common incidents that require first aid. We also have some specific guidance on first aid for children and infants.
