    The British Heart Foundation (BHF) is giving out a limited number of free defibrillators to community groups in the UK. To be eligible for a free, BHF-funded defibrillator, you must:

    • Keep the defibrillator in the provided cabinet, unlocked and uncoded so that it’s accessible to the public 24 hours a day
    • Make sure that the cabinet has a constant electricity supply so that the defibrillator stays at the right temperature in cold weather and is visible in the dark
    • Have a clear need for the device (for example, be in a busy location, or where a public access defibrillator (PAD) is not within 200 metres)
    • Have authorisation from the property owner to install the defibrillator
    • Register the defibrillator on The Circuit (the national defibrillator network) within four weeks of installation
    • Be committed to promoting BHF’s free online RevivR CPR training in your community with the resources provided

    Who can apply

    You must be applying on behalf of a community group. Some examples of groups they accept are:

    • Church organisations and other places of worship
    • Social clubs
    • Parish councils
    • Local social enterprise organisations
    • Community centres

    How to apply 

    Apply online via the BHF's website. 

    The closing date for applications is Wednesday 28 February 2024.
