Our History

How We Started

Indie Lyndale is the founder of First Aid Swindon, a family run business that has been teaching first aid for over 15 years.
Indie has over 30 years of experience in leading outdoor expeditions, as well as being a qualified teacher and lecturer. She was frustrated by the dull and ineffective training courses she had to endure, and decided to make a change.

She knows that saving lives is serious business, and that good training can make a huge difference in an emergency. That's why she has created a range of interactive and enjoyable teaching methods, which foster long-term learning.

An Different Approach

Engaging First Aid

We offer a fresh and innovative approach to first aid training. Our courses are interactive and fun, and use real-life scenarios as learning tools.
You will learn the theory behind the skills, and also get to try them out in a safe and supportive learning environment.
