PCC DN - Stop the bleed day (CitizenAid), video and co-creation

There is a need to provide better training to young people on how to identify and stop a bleed.
The Manchester Arena Inquiry Report, Volume 2-II, includes the following recommendation:
The Department for Education should consider extending the National Curriculum to ensure that pupils, once of an appropriate age, receive education in all first responder interventions.

‘Stop the bleed’ day will allow large numbers of young people to receive potentially life saving first aid training.
If the pilot in GM is successful, CitizenAid plan to roll out nationally.
