About Defibrillator Grants & Funding
London Hearts are helping to fund Public Access Defibrillators (PADs) in communities all over the country. When someone has a cardiac arrest, timely intervention is the key to survival. By making more defibrillators available, and by training more people to use them, the better the chance of survival for a cardiac arrest victim.
London Hearts can help by providing a grant of £300 to communities who are fundraising for a public access defibrillator in their area. So far they have helped sports clubs, parish councils, nonprofits and individuals who are fundraising for a defibrillator obtain funding towards the cost of a defibrillator and cabinet, making this lifesaving piece of kit more affordable.
The community is responsible for the fitting, upkeep and ongoing maintenance of the equipment along with running costs, which is around £2 - £3 per year for electricity.
