Kate Ball

Founder of Mini First Aid

In 2021 I featured on Dragons’ Den and secured investment from Sara Davies MBE In the same year I won “Most Inspiring Business Woman Award” – from the Business Women Awards. As founder of Mini First Aid, these were the crowning moments in my business journey so far. Recognition for creating a booming business that leads the way in flexible working, and inspires others to work in life-saving first aid.

With over 70 franchises nationwide, you’d be joining a hugely successful team working within an established and growing brand. Mini First Aid offers the opportunity to work flexibly and be your own boss.


In 2023 Mini First Aid were proud to receive the 5 star Franchisee Satisfaction Award from WorkBuzz:

“What makes this award so special is that it’s entirely based on confidential feedback from real franchisees and goes into detail about their franchise ownership experience. Mini First Aid earned the award based on the fact that their network was rated above the franchise industry average across all five of the key areas that we measure, including franchisee relations, and training and support.”

Steven Frost, CEO of WorkBuzz


When asked what they love most about working for Mini First Aid our franchisees told WorkBuzz:

·     Head office and the other franchisees are so supportive

·     the huge job satisfaction

·     I love this family company! Their ethos matches mine!

·     MFA is a great franchise to work with. I signed up for a second term without hesitation

How it works

The Mini First Aid core class model is simple. The 2-hour baby & child first aid class is for up to 12 people from just £25 per person so that parents & carers do not rule out the class based on cost. Mini First Aid classes are informative, but most of all interactive and fun so that attendees remember what they have learned. Our trainers run classes in a variety of public venues as well as in people’s homes. Young babies are welcome so it makes it easier for Mums to attend and new parents do not have to worry about organising childcare.

In addition to the core class, Mini First Aid offer a variety of classes including Baby Proofing and a range of First Aid Classes for children from age 3-16. Mini First Aid are also accredited by the First Aid Industry Body to offer paediatric and other work place first aid courses.

We encourage our franchisees to offer the full range of Mini First Aid Courses as the customer demand is huge!
