Make It Beat was formed when talking to professionals, it emerged that there are situations where CPR can make that difference between life and death. There are many instances when whilst waiting for the emergency services, something can be done to make the heart beat again.
It is found there are many people who want to do the training but there are barriers such as language or understanding. Special courses have been rolled out to tackle individuals, community groups and minority groups. Make It Beat Charity are committed to reaching out to as many people as possible to train them to save lives.
Two hours from our lives to learn lifesaving skills and CPR will enable us to become lifesavers.
Our vision is to train people to save lives through Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training and life-saving skills so that eventually these skills are taught automatically.
