Let The Numbers Speak

100000Deaths from Sudden Cardiac Arrests each year in the UK.
70Percent of Cardiac Arrests occur outside of a hospital environment.
50Percent increase in surviving a Sudden Cardiac Arrest with CPR.
33Percent increase in a victim’s chance of survival when an AED is used.


We will place an AED which will be fully managed and maintained by us,  by working together with you to raise the funds. Working with our Community Fundraising Manager, we will arrange:

A dedicated online fundraising page
A locally organised raffle with donated prizes
Site cashback portal- help your campaign by shopping online!
Pre-organised events for individual fundraisers such as parachuting, fun runs and other challenges 
Vouchers from local businesses with a percentage going to your campaign
Your personalised fundraising ‘Happy Hamper’ fully-loaded to kick start your campaign
Installation, registration, maintenance and replacement of your AED if lost, stolen or damaged
Press and social media awareness for your campaign

Each campaign is individual, and money raised will go directly towards your campaign. We also fundraise outside of these individual projects to help to add to individual campaigns if they need a little extra help. A lot of the campaigns will exceed their targets, with the excess funds going towards helping other projects with training, replacements, maintenance or reaching their campaign target.

Frequently Asked Questions

AEDdonate’s mission is to help communities, schools and other locations fundraise for an AED (Automated External Defibrillator). We place AEDs in areas where they are needed most, in coordination with the ‘Public Access Defibrillator’ (PAD)  scheme through Local Ambulance Services.

  1. 1
    What is Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA)?

    Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is the UK’s biggest killer, accounting for over 100,000 deaths a year. A malfunction of electrical pulses that fire into the heart suddenly & unexpectedly stop the heart from working, causing it to shut down, stopping blood flow to all vital organs in the body. Without effective treatment within minutes, SCA will usually result in death.

  2. 2
    What is an Automated External Defibrillator (AED)?

    An AED is a portable, lightweight & easy to use device that can be used by trained or untrained personnel to help save a victim from SCA. The device works by delivering electrical therapy through the chest to the heart of a sufferer of sudden cardiac arrest. An AED is the only effective treatment, which can mean the difference between life or death when dealing with an SCA victim. The AED coaches the user via voice & visual prompts, with a step-by-step process at the user’s pace. The AED analyses the heart rhythm of a victim to establish whether or not a shock is needed. This process is fully automated and means no decisions are made by the user. Our AEDs are fully automatic devices with no buttons to press, making it even simpler to use.

  3. 3
    Does the AED need a maintenance/service contract?

    In short, no. Our custodians keep an eye on it for you,  and as the AEDs are placed on site by us, maintenance is our responsibility.

  4. 4
    How easy is an AED to use?

    AEDs are very easy to use. Step-by-step intuitive voice prompts guide the rescuer through the process which will only operate at the user’s pace to ensure the correct steps are being taken. The AED analyses the heart rhythm of a person to determine whether or not therapy is required, and will automatically deliver the shock if needed. This process is fully automated, meaning there is no decision made by the user.

  5. 5
    Do you need training?

    No. Thanks to our fully automated AEDs, training is not required to operate. The Resuscitation Council (UK) states an AED can be used effectively without previous training. Therefore, the use of an AED should not be restricted to trained rescuers only. However, we encourage and arrange training for our AEDs to help remove the stigma surrounding saving lives, and to speed up response times.
