NPT Homes Provides Free First Aid Courses for Local Sports Teams

NPT Homes is offering another round of free first aid courses to help support sports teams from across the Neath Port Talbot Borough.

The three hour course will be held on Monday 24th October and will be run by Hands on First Aid Training at NPT Homes’ training centre in Briton Ferry.

Interested clubs are asked to get in touch with NPT Homes by calling 01639 508468 or emailing

Keen to give back to the local community, NPT Homes has already provided coaches at several sports clubs with emergency first aid training.

Amongst the clubs to have benefitted from previous sessions are Taibach Community FC, Nu Generation, Resolven U16s, Margam FC, 5X60 Llangatwg, Neath YMCA Gymnastics Club, Taibach Community Football Club and Llangatwg Run4Fun.

Claire Woolfe from 5x60 Llangatwg who attended the last course said:

“The course run by NPT Homes was the best 1st aid course I’ve been on. The trainer made the content very relevant to all sports and kept it interesting.”

NPT Homes’ Corporate Services Officer, Karen Neale, said:

“We have had many requests over the years for sponsorship from local sports clubs but rather than sponsor individual clubs we wanted to help as many as possible. We identified a demand for first aid training and have run several sessions for mini and junior team coaches over the last 2 years.

All sessions have been very well received so I would urge any local clubs that haven’t benefited yet to book on for the next training course which takes place in October. All we ask in return is for clubs to include us on their websites and invite us along to events during the year such as local tournaments.”
