Dukesgate Academy School in Little Hulton has now become Heart Safe, thanks to the joint funding of Hand on Heart Charity and Salford City Council Little Hulton and Walkden Ward!
Inspired by Hand on Heart’s goals, Salford City Council has committed to helping Hand on Heart create more Heart Safe schools in their local area. To achieve this, they have released funds to half fund Defibrillator Packages for schools in the local area, with Hand on Heart funding the remaining cost. Willow Tree primary is now the latest school within the Salford Campaign to be made Heart Safe!
Along with this the school will receive training to go alongside their defibrillator for 8 members of staff, this will ensure the staff are confident with the use of an AED in case of an emergency situation.
Hand on Heart Charity is pleased to have Salford City Council’s support which will help create more Heart Safe communities throughout the UK.
