May 12th is International Day of the Nurse and the 200th anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale, Ajuda joins hundreds of organisations worldwide to highlight the importance of nurses in the healthcare continuum and say a massive thank you for all the work they do on a day to day basis.
Historically, as well as today, nurses are at the forefront of fighting epidemics and pandemics – providing high quality and respectful treatment and care. They are often the first and sometimes the only health professional that people see and the quality of their initial assessment, care and treatment is vital.
We hope that as many people as possible from around the world will take part in this global moment of reflection by sharing their stories, photos and tributes on social media using the hashtag #RememberHealthHeroes. Tonight at 20.30 people all around the world will world will light a candle or even use the light on their mobile phones, to show respect for the health workers lost to this pandemic.
VE Day is Friday 8th May – Let's celebrate at home with family while self-isolating?
This year, VE Day will coincide with the early May Day bank holiday, making it the perfect time to get together with your household for a celebration. The UK may be in lockdown due to the coronavirus outbreak, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still have a weekend of celebrations to mark this special moment in history.
Why do we celebrate VE Day?
VE Day marked the end of World War 2 – and in turn, the end of Adolf Hitler’s reign. As such, it was a cause for celebration all over the world. At 3pm that day, Prime Minister Winston Churchill told the nation that the war was over. In London, a crowd of 50,000 celebrated the momentous event in Piccadilly Circus, cheering and waving flags in the street. This year is particularly poignant, given that it’s the 75th anniversary of VE Day.
Join The Nation in a two minute silence
At 11am, a national two-minute silence will be held to remember the sacrifice of those who fought in the war.
Toast to the Heroes
At 3pm, Britons are being invited to take to their doorsteps to raise a glass, cheer and clap during The National Toast to the Heroes of World War Two.
Join in a National sing-along
Music helped to keep morale high in wartime and we could all use a little boost ourselves in these times of uncertainty.
Dame Vera Lynn will lead us in a nationwide sing-along to wartime classic We'll Meet Again on Friday night.
The 103-year-old singer will perform from a window at her Sussex home just after 9pm, following the Queen's special address to the nation.
Let's all join her and lift the spirits of the nation
VE Day 75: The People's Celebration airs on BBC One from 8pm.
Vera Lynn Now & Then
The world must know what happened, and never forget.’ – General Dwight D. Eisenhower
Qualification renewal is crucial, whether it is for first aid, fire safety, or food hygiene, not only to keep your qualifications up to date but your knowledge too. You know how to get a certificate, but did you know it’s important to keep it current?
Why is it important to renew?
1. The guidelines and procedures can change
Each year, new medical advancements are made, guidelines are revisited and procedures can be updated or amended. To stay on top of all changes, regular training renewal is vital. You don’t want to perform a previous version of a procedure if there is a newer, more effective version available, especially when it comes to life-saving procedures
2. To continually refresh skills and knowledge
Even if only a few details have changed since you last did a training course, if you’re not performing first aid and CPR on a regular basis you’re likely to start to forget little things.
Keep your skills and knowledge refreshed and stay in practice by renewing within the recommended three-year time frame for first aid or every 12 months for the CPR component.
3. Stay confident
It’s one thing to know the techniques, but it’s another to have the confidence to apply them when the time comes. Regular training ensures that you will always have the confidence (along with those life-saving skills) to act quickly and effectively when faced with a potentially stressful medical situation.
BOOK ON ONE OF OUR OPEN COURSES AT AJUDA TRAINING ACADEMY
Around 30,000 people in Britain every year suffer a sudden
cardiac arrest in the community and around 8,000 people suffer in Wales from
the same reason. They can affect anyone at any time – from young children at
school, to adults when they are at work or at home. In that case it seems to be
important to know what a defibrillator is, how to use it and where to find it –
What does #defibruary actually stands for?
The combination of words defibrillator and February aims to create an action which will increase the awareness of defibrillators importance. The Welsh Ambulance Service dedicated the whole month for educating people how to use those lifesaving devices to decrease the negative effects of cardiac arrests. The victim’s chances for survival are close to 90% if defibrillator is used within the first minute of collapse. For every minute that defibrillation is delayed, survival decreases by 7% to 10%. Delay for over 10 minutes decreases the chance of survival in adults to less than 5 percent. The greater knowledge about defibrillators the greater chances to save lives!
Defibrillators – all you need to know
Defibrillator called also AED – automated external defibrillator is a
portable lifesaving device used to
administer an electric shock to the heart and restore the heart’s normal
rhythm during sudden cardiac arrest. If the heart can be shocked quickly with an
AED, a normal heart rhythm may be restored. Due to being portable,
automated and easy to use defibrillators can be used in public places and
How to use them?
Although not all defibrillators look the same, they function broadly in
the same way. The most important thing you can do if you come across the
unconscious and unresponsive person is to call 999 and start CPR to keep the
blood flowing in the organism. Every minute without CPR and defibrillation
after experiencing a heart attack reduces someone’s chance of survival by 10%.
If you do have a defibrillator these are a few steps that you need to follow:
Turn the defibrillator on with the green button
and follow its instructions.
Peel off the sticky pads and attach them to the
patient’s skin as it’s shown in the picture on the defibrillator (one on each
side of the chest).
Once you attach the pads, stop CPR and don’t
touch the patient.
The defibrillator will analyse the patient’s
heartbeat and assess whether a shock is needed and if so, it will tell you to
press the shock button (an automatic defibrillator will shock the patient
The defibrillator will tell you when the shock
has been delivered and whether you need to continue CPR.
If so, continue with CPR procedure until the
patient shows signs of life or the defibrillator tells you to stop so it can
analyse the heartbeat again, or until the ambulance arrives.
Locate your nearest AED
Make sure that you know where the nearest defibrillator in your area is. The AED location map can be found at http://www.heartsafe.org.uk/aed-locations. It has developed over 12 years to assist people living in communities to know in advance where their local public defibrillator may be positioned in case of emergency. These are places in Cardiff where you can find AEDs:
Importance of AED in your workplace
Every workplace has to invest in certain items to protect its staff members and keep them safe from harm. These include first aid kits, fire blankets and fire distinguishers. However, AED is often left off the list and so we have to make sure that this lifesaving device is located in our workplace. Survival rates of sudden cardiac arrests are very low – without immediate treatment, a massive 90 to 95% of SCA victims will not survive. For optimum survival rates, a person suffering from an SCA needs a shock from a defibrillator.
A shocking 13% of workplace fatalities are due to
someone suffering from SCA, which just shows
how important it is to have a defibrillator in the workplace. Business owners
and HR managers need to understand the risks. When it comes to SCAs, the
severity of the potential risk is incredibly high. For
the cost of a new computer or a round of drinks at the office party,
you could purchase a device that can, quite literally, be the
difference between life and death.
Apart from having the AED at your workplace, managers should also prepare their workers for various situations by giving them specific first aid trainings. Our company can help you deliver them to both your workplace and individually. Check out our classroom and online training courses at https://www.ajuda.org.uk/ and make sure your workers can feel safe at the workplace!
This campaign exists to raise awareness of the impact of using a defibrillator. It also encourages the public to sign up to free first aid training classes and to raise money and fundraise to place more defibrillators within the community. At https://www.thewave.co.uk/news/local/welsh-ambulance-live-saving-campaign/ you can find all the additional information about the action and some materials to share. We encourage you to be the part of it and help us spread awareness!
The workplace can seem like a safe place, but, there are risks you wouldn’t think of until they happen. An accident can occur at any time and if it did, who in the workplace is trained to help? It is a legal requirement as a company to ensure your employees receive immediate attention. Here are 10 reasons why you should consider First Aid Training for employees.
1. It can save lives
2. Reduce the number of workplace accidents
3. Positive work environment
4. Your company will be safer place to work
5. First aid kits are used properly
6. It can reduce recovery time
7. It can keep employees safe outside of the workplace
8. It’s a great team-building exercise
9. It gives your employees confidence and clarity during an emergency First aid training doesn’t just teach your staff how to treat patients in need of first aid, it also gives them confidence and effectively manage an emergency without fear, confusion or overwhelm.
10. The cost of a First Aid at Work Training course is nothing compared to that of potentially saving a live. Providing first aid and CPR training doesn’t cost much, but it will go a long way to ensuring workplace health and safety.

Ajuda for mental health
topic of mental health is extremally important for our company as we focus on
educating people to save lives. You can save lives not only by helping people
with their physical problems but most importantly you can save lives by talking
with people and listening to them. This way you can help them with more
complicated psychological issues.
highlight the importance of the mental health and to increase the awareness
about this topic we created a separate full-day event. Mental Health &
Wellbeing Show is taking place on 21st of May 2020 in Cardiff City
Stadium. This is the show dedicated to mental health and aiming to promote
positive mental health through open conversation, promoting awareness and
sharing real-life experiences. Our seminar speakers focus on topics such as
coping with mental illness, ways to promote positive mental health, and how to
support people around you who are suffering with ill mental health. Apart from
the seminars, there will also be an open exhibition with over 60 charities,
organisations and companies promoting their helpful resources, services and
initiatives all focused on supporting mental health and wellbeing.
We celebrated our 10th anniversary, launched brand new courses, won awards, trained hundreds of delegates in a range of courses, launched a new website, and launched 2 new events
CELEBRATING 10 YEARS!
We celebrated 10 years of Ajuda!
A very special milestone was hit in 2019, too, with Ajuda celebrating a whole 10 years in business! In this past decade we have trained over 60,000 people, developed an extensive catalogue of popular courses, and worked with some fantastic people and organisations over the years.
To celebrate, Ajuda had a 10 year party at the Copthorne Hotel in Cardiff which included a fantastic meal, entertainment and a charity auction.
The chosen charity for the event was the ABF Soldiers’ Charity, a charity that our director Dawn supports regularly.
We hope that the next 10 years will bring us just as much fun!
New Mental Health Courses Launched!
2019 saw the launch of some brand new Mental Health First Aid courses on offer to our customers.
According to Mind Charity, every year 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem.
At Ajuda we want to be at the forefront of the battle to stop the stigma surrounding mental health, and training people to spot and treat the signs of mental illness is key to reducing the number of people suffering in silence.
We offer both adult and youth training for mental health, and can offer the course in-house at our Cardiff Bay training centre or at a venue of your choice. Please check our website for the next upcoming course dates.
Hundreds of delegates trained in First Aid, Food Safety, Fire Safety, Manual Handling and much more!
We’re pleased to see that people are fulfilling their recommended training requirements.
We are incredibly proud of the feedback we have been receiving from delegates across all of our courses in the past few months and would like to thank all of our trainers for their exceptional training delivery.
We run regular training courses at our Training Academy in Cardiff Bay but we can also provide in house training at your workplace, business or school.
We are flexible and accommodate our customers to meet their training needs.
We even use real fire on our Fire Safety training!
The ABF Soldiers’ Charity is one very close to Dawn’s heart, and she regularly fundraises for them in a variety of different ways including her events. In September, Dawn took on another big challenge for ABF Soldiers’ charity – climbing Mount Toubkal in Morocco.
Standing at 4,167m, Mount Toubkal is the highest peak in the Atlas Mountains and the tallest mountain in North Africa.
Dawn took on the challenge accompanied by her husband, Ianto, who both served in the army for a combined total of 45 years.
Together they smashed the challenge, and also raised an amazing £4,132.33 for the charity.
Thanks to all those who donated and supported.
We launched a brand new website at the start of the year, which means you can now book places on our open courses online, direct from the website.
You can also view all our courses, read interesting and helpful articles, download our brochures and much more.
We will soon be launching a brand new website shop where you can purchase a range of first aid supplies 💻
To coincide with the launch of our new mental health courses, we have also created two brand new events. We recognised that there was a big demand in Wales for more discussion and awareness around mental health, illness and wellbeing – so we have decided to give our customers what they want and create bigger events for these topics.
Our annual Talking Mental Health Conference was officially launched on 10th October 2019, and welcomed over 120 delegates, 25 exhibitors and 7 speakers to Cardiff City Stadium for a day of inspirational talks and real-life experiences of dealing with mental illness. We are also preparing for our bigger Mental Health & Wellbeing Show which will also be held in Cardiff City Stadium, which will include over 50 exhibitors, 30 speakers and we already have over 400 people booked to attend!
If you would like any more information on how to get involved with these, please contact us today!
