Life. Live it.

If you’re aged between 11 and 18, Life. Live it. is for you. It's a campaign by the British Red Cross to make sure young people know how to cope in a crisis. We offer first aid advice on everything from self harm and seizures to stab wounds and burns.

Learning first aid is simple – you don’t need to be an expert but a little bit of knowledge goes a long way.

Go to the campaign page on Facebook to get advice, free apps and watch videos with YouTube stars.
