New Football Club Defibrillator Scheme

Jay's Aim is a registered charity set up to reduce the number of young people who die from sudden cardiac arrest in SW England. One of the things we do is provide public access defibrillators to schools, sports clubs and public places. We have provided over 70 since setting up in 2018 so are now relatively experienced in the process.

Jays Aim have been working tirelessly with the target of reducing the rate of sudden cardiac death among young people. The Adam Stansfield Foundation recognise the importance of the work Jays Aim have done and want to support this further with football clubs which have a junior section in Devon and Somerset.

Both charities will be funding £500 towards the cost of a public access defibrillator (defibrillator and external cabinet) for any football club in Devon or Somerset with a youth section. We are asking the club to pay/fundraise just the remaining £300 that it costs us as a charity to purchase this equipment. Clubs that fulfil this criteria can apply to either charity through their website's. These will not only benefit the football club but also the local community in addressing sudden cardiac death in the young. The life saving intervention on Fabrice Muamba and Christian Eriksen highlight the importance of defibrillators in sports environments and community's.

To register your interest and find out more please contact either charity through the 'contact' sections of their respective websites by 23/8/21: www.jaysaim.co.uk or www.adamstansfieldfoundation.com

If clubs were to buy this equipment at the normal retail price they would be paying in the region of £1,500 + VAT.

Jay Osborne and Adam Stansfield were both fathers, sons, brothers and uncle's. Both taken too soon. Their respective charities are joining forces to help equip local football clubs in Devon and Somerset with defibrillators.
