Protecting your children should anything ever happen to you is every parents number one priority. This is why we offer a free letter of wishes document through Finsbury Associates.

Family Safeguarding & Protection

As part of protecting your family – we help to ensure that you’re children are protected financially should something ever happen to you. It’s quick and simple to get insurance through our team.

We have run workshops for thousands of individuals in the UAE, across hundreds of schools and nurseries – as well as companies and communities. Get in touch to book one today.

First Aid Training & Certification

Once you’ve attended a workshop, we also offer full first aid training and certification course through our team at Safe Hands UAE. These are in depth courses to help you learn.

Community workshops

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.

Safeguarding your family is the most important thing you can do

In Case of Emergency

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 used as a letter of wishes as a plan to avoid the next steps of legal or police intervention.


We will also put you in touch with our team at Finsbury Associates, who can 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.

They can also help ensure your family is protected with the correct levels of life insurance or critical illness cover, as well as carrying out a free estate planning assessment.

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.

What People are Saying

” 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 Wood (Legal 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”
