About Dawn Evans (MD of Ajuda Limited)
Since forming Ajuda Limited in October 2009, Dawn and her team have trained over 40,000 students in a variety of vocational qualifications such as First Aid, Health & Safety, Food Hygiene, Fire Safety, Manual Handling – to name but a few. Dawn herself is an immensely passionate first aid tutor; she established Ajuda after a traumatic incident where her daughter choked. Dawn recognised that if she had not had essential first aid skills, her daughter might have died. Ajuda really does educate people to save lives, and this fact alone makes Dawn’s hard work worthwhile. As the company has expanded, Dawn has been able to offer several work placements to students from Cardiff Met University, and has given employment to Graduates via the Go Wales – Jobs Growth Wales programme. Dawn has offered employment on a permanent basis to 6 local people and has employed 30 associate trainers.
Ajuda is a community-focused company; Dawn always puts the needs of her clients first. In March 2014 Dawn won a Welsh business award for community contribution and youth development on behalf of her work with Ajuda and the Community to Work partnership. In March 2015, Dawn was announced as one of the most inspirational people in Wales after being awarded the Educator award at the Inspire Wales Awards, which were held at an extravagant Gala Dinner event at Cardiff City Hall. Dawn was invited to St James Palace where she had the opportunity to talk to HRH Prince Phillip about the extensive First Aid training that she and Ajuda have carried out, educating the people of South Wales in life-saving CPR skills. In September 2016, she was named Female Entrepreneur of the Year at the South Wales Business Awards.
Dawn has designed many training programmes over the past 6 years and her First Aid Trainer course has been attended by organisations across the United Kingdom. Ajuda continues to support around 75 local companies with in-house delivery of Health & Safety and supports approximately 25 companies with their staff’s personal development.
In addition to her role as MD of Ajuda, Dawn is a Role Model for the Welsh Government Big Ideas Programme. This involves delivering presentations on Entrepreneurship, where she takes the time to share her experiences with students aged 13 and upwards in order to inspire the confidence and motivation to consider launching their own company in the future. Dawn regularly attends schools, colleges and universities, delivering presentations on her experiences as a successful local company. She aims to inspire the youth of today into entrepreneurship. Dawn is also a business mentor for The Prince’s Trust, a role she has found very rewarding as she mentors young individuals who are about to start their journeys into entrepreneurship.
Ajuda have been working in partnership with the British Heart Foundation since 2014 when Dawn set up Heartstart Cardiff. This is a scheme where her trainers work on a voluntary basis providing free First Aid training to local school children. Dawn’s father suffered a Cardiac Arrest in January 2013. Dawn stated that “my father is alive today because my mother performed CPR on him, keeping him alive until a defibrillator was in place. My father is a survivor due to First Aid Training”. The British Heart Foundation nominated Dawn for a Heart Hero Award in 2015 for her fundraising and contribution to the BHF. She was announced as the winner of this award last year.
