Welcome to Kids Initiative

Everyone agrees that first aid is an important skill to have, yet often with the whirlwind that is Dubai, work and family, it’s often put to the bottom of our   to-do list.

Kids Initiative is a campaign created by Safe Hands, a Dubai based first aid training company which focuses on family safeguarding and protection. Kids Initiative was created out of a need for parents and caregivers to have basic life saving skills in the event of an emergency and to help expatriates with the knowledge to help safeguard their families should the unthinkable happen.

Registered Nurses

Our team of registered nurses deliver an interactive workshop focused on basic first aid skills such as CPR to ensure that you have the knowledge and skills needed in the event of an emergency.

Here’s what people have been saying about our workshops and courses:

” I have attended this training, in fact they came and trained the whole of Dubai Government Legal Affairs Department on infant first aid and it was great! Very well presented and I would recommend it to anyone, those with no experience and those who’ve been trained before as a refresher. Two weeks after Rebecca came to train us, my colleague’s son choked badly and using the training he received, he actually saved his son’s life”

Duncan WoodLegal Counsel , Dubai Government Legal Affairs Department

Thanks so much for helping us organise this training.  It was very successful and we thought Alys was amazing – completely on top of the material and dealt really competently with all our questions, even when not covered specifically by the course.  I will definitely recommend you to other leaders

Safeguarding your family is the most important thing you can do

Kids Initiative also offer family safeguarding information to help ensure your family is protected in the event of an emergency or  the unthinkable happening. We can support you in drawing up your free ICE plan (In Case of Emergency) so the correct procedures are followed and those looking after your children know who to contact in an emergency. The template we use has been approved by the Dubai Courts and is intended to be a plan to avoid the next steps of legal or police intervention.

We can also put you in touch with our sister company, Finsbury Associates, who will refer you to the right legal professionals to draft legally binding wills and guardianship agreements, giving you the peace of mind that your family members are protected. For more information contact us.

Safeguarding your family doesn’t stop there. If you don’t have life insurance or critical illness cover, it’s possible your family are at risk, should the worst happen to you. For more details on how we can help you arrange the appropriate cover to safeguard your family, contact us for a chat with one of our team.

Safe Hands is part of the Blue Sky Thinking Group, a holding group created to protect and grow the things you care about, in the most innovative way. For more information on what Safe Hands can offer you, please visit our main site: www.safehandsuae.com
