MedicAlert Early Start kidsThe Lions Early Start Programme offers free membership every year for your child, up until their 10th birthday. Membership provides your child with a personal electronic record to securely store their information including comprehensive medical history, directives or precautions to ensure no time is lost in an emergency.

Your child will also receive their first item of jewellery for free. The disc will be engraved with their immediate details, their membership number and our 24/7 emergency phone number, so that first responders can access your child’s electronic record.
