Dawn Evans to talk at The National Education Show

Dawn Evans is also set to talk at The National Education Show in November 2018. Dawn established Ajuda 10 years ago after her young daughter choked on a sweet. She realised the huge importance of first aid training; if she did not have essential first aid skills, her daughter could have died. After this incidence, Dawn set out to become a qualified first aid trainer and started teaching parents, teachers, creche assistants, schools and colleges first aid skills. First aid and teaching people how easy it is to save a life has become a passion for Dawn.

Ajuda specialises in a variety of health and safety related courses in order to keep schools safe. Ajuda facilitates affordable courses in schools throughout the UK and are specialists in onsite training during school inset days.

First Aid for Schools

At The National Education Show, Dawn will be holding a seminar introducing how to perform CPR and use a defibrillator in a school environment. Parents count on school staff & teachers to keep their children safe – in class, in the halls, and on the athletic fields. By attending Dawn’s seminar, delegates will take a step towards becoming advocates for automated external defibrillators. Delegates will learn, on a basic level, how to protect children and staff from sudden cardiac arrest and potentially death. Being equipped with this life-saving knowledge also ensures that other teachers are protected in the school environment.

During the seminar, Dawn will be showing attendees the basic skills required to save a life, including the use of CPR and the external defibrillator. To book your ticket to attend Dawn’s seminar, please see here.


The National Education show is an all-day education conference in South Wales that plays host to over 4,000 teachers, 100 companies and 40 professional speakers. Last year, Ajuda ran a competition at the show for attendees to win a life-saving defibrillator for their school. The lucky school that won the competition was Blaenavon Heritage VC Primary School. We are thrilled to announce that this year we will be running the same competition. For more information about our stand please read our exhibitor spotlight here.

What is the purpose of a defibrillator?

If a defibrillator is used and effective CPR is performed within 3-5 minutes of cardiac arrest, chances of survival will increase from 6% to 74%.
The current rate of initial bystander CPR is reported at just 43%.Unfortunately, only 20% of cardiac arrest victims are in a ‘shock-able’ rhythm when the Emergency Services arrive; this figure could be increased if more cardiac arrest victims received CPR from bystanders. Furthermore, when someone is suffering from cardiac arrest, every minute that passes without CPR and defibrillation reduces their chances of survival by 7-10%.  

Cardiac arrest can effect anyone, from children, to healthy young adults, to the elderly; by installing a defibrillator on your premises, you are contributing to making it a safe space. 

How do I place an order?

Contact us on 029 2057 6883 or admin@ ajuda.org.uk to place your defibrillator order before the end of January.


Why Cancer Research?

In September 2018, Ajuda’s Managing Director, Dawn Evans, will be trekking up Machu Picchu with a team of other fundraisers. Dawn will be fundraising for Cancer Research Wales. She will be doing this in memory of a life-long friend who sadly passed away in 2016 from cancer.

Cancer Research Wales funds a great variety of projects in Wales which are important in the battle against cancer.

These projects are undertaken in the universities and hospitals throughout the principality and cover many cancer sites that include cancers of the prostate, colon, breast, kidney, blood (leukemia), cervix and esophagus. As well as focusing on site specific cancers the Cancer Research Wales research portfolio is rich in studies that seek to better understand the fundamental processes of cancer biology that are common to all cancers, such as uncontrolled cell growth, invasion and spread, resistance to chemo- and radiotherapies and immune evasion.

Ajuda installs AED Defib at Newport Cathedral

Ajuda installed a Defib at Newport Cathedral, an active Christian community and place of worship situated on top of Stow Hill and overlooking the city of Newport.  Members of the church have recently acknowledged the importance of having an automated external defibrillator (AED) in their parish and have called on Ajuda to install one and teach them how to use it.  A defibrillator is a very important piece of equipment that can truly help to save a life by giving a high energy electric shock to the heart in certain types of cardiac arrest. Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) alone raises a person’s chance of survival from a cardiac arrest to 4%; CPR combined with the use of an AED increases the chance of survival to 74%.

There are currently many ongoing appeals in the UK to make it mandatory to have defibrillators installed in public places; so, this is a very positive and significant step for the church.  The AED, funded by a member of the parish, has been installed and is ready to use in an emergency.  Ten parishioners underwent training from Dawn Evans.  They learnt how to perform CPR and how to use an AED.  In recognising the significance of defibrillators and taking action, the parish is really looking after their community – it is a very important and worthy step forward. By taking this training and having the AED installed, in the unfortunate event that somebody suffers a cardiac arrest when inside or nearby the Cathedral, they will be in well-trained hands and will have an increased chance of survival.
