As well as creating the airway clearance device & choking prevention industry, LifeVac have built a leading reputation within it. Becoming and remaining the “go to” company for peoples ACD and choking prevention needs. LifeVac are the leaders in the industry that we created, being scientifically proven to be the safest, most effective and easiest airway clearance device in the world.
Over the years we have formed partnerships with leading companies within their industries. Our partnerships do not only help raise awareness of choking and choking prevention, but also help save lives.
Help Save Lives was originally launched to promote defibrillators and to spread the word about how important they are and why they should be everywhere. Now 7 years on – we are still here and still working to the same mission.
We are still doing what we set out to do and along the way we have added some fantastic essential life saving products and services.
We only offer one brand of defibrillator with an essential switch! Most defibrillators available on the market have 2 sets of electrode pads – one for adults and one for children. From personal experience this can be confusing and time consuming to the layperson using the device, especially if they haven’t had training. With the Mediana A15 defibrillator all they have to do is flick a switch – amazing.
About 6 years ago we were lucky enough to help promote the anti-choking device – LifeVac. This simple, easy to use device can stop a person choking if the First Aid protocol does not work (back slaps and abdominal thrust) or if a person cannot have the protocol performed on them. This amazing device has now saved over 100 people from ages 4 months to 96 years around the world. WOW!
Two years ago we realised how good 4-11 year old children were at basic First Aid. So we developed a First Aid class, created some lovely characters and wrote a fun book for younger children to support the classes – FAB First Aid. We have now trained over 20,000 Primary school children and even won an award for this from the Royal Borough of Greenwich Business awards. Our continued motivation comes not only from the joy of teaching children these important life skills, as the owner of Help Save Lives I had a very personal experience that changed my life. Sadly my own father became unwell and I found myself in the situation where I had to perform CPR and use my own personal defibrillator on him. After this surreal incident I was determined to introduce these skills to as many children as I could so that in the future they might remember what to do if they are ever put in this situation.
LifeVac Europe and Help Save Lives have worked together since the very beginning, Click here to visit Help Save Lives/FAB First Aid

We all know that social care is highly fragmented and that this fragmentation causes knowledge silos. Despite the care workforce striving passionately to affect positive change, ultimately, these silos are holding the sector back.
But, it doesn’t have to be this way. We believe that by digitally connecting social care leaders we can break down these silos and accelerate positive change.
That is why we have established the Care Leaders Network (CLN). At its core, CLN is an online community that connects the leaders of social care organisations.
CLN exists to empower the sector’s pioneers, innovators and change-makers to break down silos and to accelerate positive change. We do this because, together, we’re stronger.
We envision a world where all of the great leaders of the UK social care sector are digitally united in a single online community, for the betterment of society. Click here to join the CLN.
