About us

Do it for Defib was formed in May 2018. At that time, we were just four local Brackley people consisting of; a cardiac arrest survivor, a lifesaver, a nurse and a financial administrator. We each shared a common interest in helping people gain the necessary skills and confidence which could someday potentially save someone’s life in an emergency situation. We became a registered charity in July 2019 (charity no. 1184462).

We provide training courses to the general public in Basic Life Support (CPR) and Defibrillator awareness. The funds raised via our courses (£10 per person), our organised fundraising events and very kind donations to the charity allow us to purchase and install Public Access Defibrillators known as AED’s (Automated External Defib) for communities in need of this lifesaving equipment.

Our campaign to teach as many people as possible whilst tirelessly fundraising has led to the installation of thirteen AED’s within our local community of Brackley. We are super proud to say there is now a public access defibrillator within a 700 metre radius of all our residents living in Brackley. Our efforts have now been focused on surrounding villages. We have to date installed three AED’s in three villages and delivered a training course for the local residents.

Our overriding
goal is to help
save lives!

A sudden cardiac arrest is when a person’s heart stops pumping blood around the body and they stop breathing. This can often strike with no prior warning and affects people of any age. Currently the chances of surviving an out of hospital cardiac arrest in the UK is 8%.

There are approximately 60,000 calls made per year to the ambulance service with suspected cardiac arrest with 80% of these occurring in the home. Resuscitation is only attempted by the ambulance crew on less than half of these victims (28,000) because unfortunately by the time crew arrive the casualty has already died as a result of not receiving bystander CPR.

With early bystander recognition, an early call for help, early CPR and early defibrillation known as “The Chain of Survival” the chances of survival dramatically increase. With CPR and Defibrillation in under 5 minutes a victim’s chance of survival increases to 50-70%.
