Who we are

"We always said that if we managed to save

one life it would all be worthwhile.

It was December 2006 on the Isle of Skye and our Founder Ross Cowie suffered a cardiac arrest.  It was by pure luck that an ambulance happened to be passing by.  With the skills of the crew and the equipment that they carried Ross' life was saved.  Ross established Lucky2BHere in the hope that he could give others the same chance.  

Lucky2BHere has now trained over 30,000 people (including thousands of school children) in Emergency Life Support skills and we have created hundreds of resilient communities with over 500 defibrillators placed. Our guiding principles of Community Empowerment, Cooperation and Education have never changed.  We have worked closely with the NHS, Scottish Ambulance Service, local Councils and many many businesses and community organisations to make it all happen. 

Thanks to the support of ordinary people like you, communities across Scotland now have the confidence, skills and equipment to save a life. Lives have already been saved though there is always work to be done -

Thank You for your support!
