Stride with SADS UK in Hyde Park, London to raise awareness and funds to STOP SADS on Sunday May 8th 2022. Find out more here

SADS UK partnership in a lifesaving programme to help improve survival rates after a cardiac arrest is being supported with almost £2.5m over the next three years by the Welsh Government.

July 7, 2021

The funding will enable Save a Life Cymru to raise awareness about the cardiac arrest chain of survival and fund new educational and training resources, including improving public access to defibrillators.

The programme aims to educate people in Wales about the need to help anyone suffering an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest and help develop their skills and confidence to provide CPR and defibrillation.

It comes as figures show Wales has one of the lowest survival rates in Europe and the lowest in the UK if someone suffers an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest – a survival rate of just 4.6% in Wales, this is less than half that of England (9.4%); lower than Scotland (10.2%); Norway (25%) and the Netherlands (21%).
