We donate a life saving defibrillator in Aldershot

Our West London team has donated a public access defibrillator (PAD) to Toyebox Early Years Centre in Aldershot.

Supporting our communities

As part of a joint initiative with the British Heart Foundation (BHF), the homebuilder is donating potentially life-saving PAD’s to communities around the UK to help people who suffer from an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. 

During 2019, the BHF worked with Taylor Wimpey to train its employees in CPR skills and to provide every one of their building sites in the UK with a defibrillator.

As part of its commitment to leaving a lasting legacy in the areas in which it builds, Taylor Wimpey is donating the defibrillators to a number of local communities. With the housebuilder’s presence in the region well established through a variety of developments, Aldershot residents are the latest to be gifted a PAD. 

Taylor Wimpey has also committed to ensuring all of its defibrillators are registered on The Circuit, the national defibrillator network, which is a joint venture with the British Heart Foundation, the Association of Ambulance Chief Executives, the Resuscitation Council UK and St John Ambulance. Data from The Circuit is shared with 999 call handlers so dispatchers can direct bystanders straight to the nearest defibrillator. This increases the chances of defibrillators being used quickly and significantly improves the chances of a successful resuscitation.
