It‘s our mission to end needless deaths due to inadequate on-road first-aid
Our Aims & Objectives
We train both professional & fleet drivers to provide an effective first response at a road traffic collision
We have a single aim: to reduce, if not eliminate, unnecessary deaths caused by the absence of an immediate medical response following a road traffic collision.
A rapid response, following an accident or medical emergency, saves lives and minimises the seriousness of injuries.
This is why first aid in the workplace is a regulatory requirement.
There is a significant disparity between the provision of first aid for drivers and their non-mobile counterparts. This is an unacceptable situation which can and must be changed.
- To raise awareness of the importance of improving post crash response in an endeavour to prevent countless unnecessary fatalities.
- Engage with businesses to ensure they train a substantial proportion, if not all, of their drivers to the DFA standard.
- Create a cohort of DFA trained drivers sufficiently representative of the driving population, capable of significantly reducing annual RTC fatalities – for the first time in over a decade.
Everyone is entitled to the protection of emergency first-aid – including drivers!

WHAT THEY SAY
The hon. Gentleman, (Rob Flello MP) highlighted eloquently the difference made by DFA, and our nation is stronger for its work. (Hansard, November 2015)
Very impressed with the trainer. Delivered content clearly and concisely without ever talking down to attendees. One of the most exciting courses I have ever attended.
Excellent Training and course. The Content was pitched just right with a good mix of presenting/videos and practical.
Providing professional drivers, who are often first to witness or come across such incidents, with basic life support training and the knowledge to know what to do will ultimately mean patients get the care they need whilst emergency help is en route.
