Kate Ball

Founder of Mini First Aid

In 2015 Mini First Aid won a Top 100 New Business award from Mumpreneur UK. As founder of Mini First Aid, this was the moment I realised I had achieved my ambition of creating a business that would allow me to spend more time with my children, earn a good living and crucially do something worthwhile.

How it all started

Kate Ball set up Mini First Aid in January 2014, offering quality baby & toddler first aid classes to parents and carers in Leeds. Kate saw the potential for growth and started franchising the business in 2015. Mini First Aid now has over 50 franchises offering a range of classes across the UK for adults and children, training them in basic and lifesaving first aid. 

How it works

The Mini First Aid core class model is simple. The 2 hour baby & toddler first aid class is for up to 12 people from just £20 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 wide variety of classes including Early Years, Kids and full paediatric first aid courses. It is entirely up to you which classes you offer in your area. 

What you receive

Mini First Aid takes a personalised approach to make sure that you, as a franchisee have the opportunity to grow your business and make it a success. 

With your initial investment you receive full training and certification as a Paediatric First Aid Instructor, the equipment and promotional tools needed to start your franchise business, and access to the systems and resources needed to run your franchise business. 

Using distinct mapping tools we provide you with an exclusive territory area to work within.  Your weekly management fee, based on the population of your territory, provides you with your ongoing business coaching support for your business, national and regional PR, editorial and ongoing professional development.


The franchise is available for 3 years – at which point you get an option to renew for a further 3 years or go and do something different!

The best bit, you can work as much or as little as you want, so if you only want to run 1 class a week and earn £200 per week, you can – and 1 class is just 2 hours (with a bit of time invested in the admin)

If this sounds like something you would be interested in exploring further please get in touch.
