Dawn Molloy, a mother of 4 and a grandmother of 9, has been a Registered Nurse as well as a mother for nearly 40 years. You may well understand then, why she has long been passionate about keeping kids as safe as possible.
A few years ago, while Dawn was delivering the 2 day, OSH-accredited, certified First Aid courses, she often had people say to her that they could afford neither the time nor the fee involved in such courses, and nor did they need the intensity, but that they would love to be able to do a basic First Aid course if only such a thing were available.
Research indicated that there was no such course, and so Dawn and husband Paul spent many months developing one. The aim was to retain full professionalism, but narrow down the content by focusing mainly on issues likely to be relevant in a family situation. Then over the next few months the course was delivered to a selected range of people, so that it could be polished and honed in response to feedback.
The result was A Practical Approach to Family First Aid, (now called FamilyCare First Aid), a 2 hour course covering key subjects of particular interest to parents of young children.
As at July 2012, well over 3,000 people have been through a Family First Aid course, mainly in the Auckland and Waikato regions, and demand has led to the development of several supplemental courses, each with a slightly different focus.
Our mission: To eliminate accidental child deaths in the home, resulting from lack of knowledge on the part of a parent or carer.Our goal: To bring practical First Aid training within reach of everyone.
But what do Others say about us?
