NPT Homes Provides Free First Aid Courses for Local Sports Teams

NPT Homes has rolled out its latest round of free first aid courses to help support sports teams from across the Borough.

Keen to give back to the local community, the Registered Social Landlord recently provided emergency first aid courses to aid coaches during future sporting seasons.
The organisation held the three hour course, run by Hands on First Aid Training based in Baglan, at its training centre in Briton Ferry.

Representatives from Coedffranc AFC, Bryncoch FC, Giants Grave Boys and Girls Club, CPH Cricket, Cwmafan Rugby Club and Llandarcy AFC all took advantage of the free training course.
The next course is planned for January 2016 and interested clubs are asked to get in touch with NPT Homes by calling 01639 505857 or emailing

The deadline for expressions of interest is Friday 8th January 2016 and clubs are asked to provide details of the number of coaches that would be interested in taking part in the training.

Attendee Rachel Owen from Bryncoch Football Club said:
“Thanks to NPT Homes we will now have trained first aiders at all of our games and tournaments taking place this season. Hands on First Aid Training gave us all the skills we need to deliver first aid with confidence. It was not only enjoyable but also very educational and informative.”

NPT Homes Corporate Services Officer Karen Neale said:
“Community Regeneration is high on our agenda. 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 so have run several sessions for mini and junior team coaches.
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, taking place in January 2016. All we ask in return is for clubs to include us as sponsors on their websites and to invite us along to events during the year such as local tournaments.”
