Meeting Our Social Aims
As a social enterprise holding the nationally recognised Social Enterprise Mark we have to demonstrate we are meeting our social and environmental aims. At Cloudberry we do that by donating our annual surplus to charity and delivering training at reduced or no cost. In 2016-17 we provided over £6,000 of discounted time to community groups and voluntary organisations.
In July we will be providing first aid for the first time to 30 Brownies from Whitley Bay who are working towards their First Aid Badges.

Defibrillator Training for Schools
The end of February and the start of March has seen Cloudberry delivering CPR & Defibrillator training in a number of Primary and Secondary Schools on behalf of award winning Charity Hand On Heart.
The Charity supplies defibrillators, usually paid for from fundraising events organised by individuals or local communities. With over 60,000 out of hospital cardiac arrests a year in the UK these are essential life saving pieces of equipment.
Usual training is 3 hours in lenght and there is plenty or opportunitiy to refresh basic CPR skills and learn how to use a defibrillator.
"The session was really good exspecially with how interactive it was and with so much hands on practice. Felt like I've really learnt a lot" Primary School Teaching Assistant
First Aid Training Great Feedback
Candidates on a recent outdoor First Aid course gave Paul Freeman some great feedback. The course delivered on behalf of Alder Holly, a major provider of first aid in Scotland, at a venue near Edinburgh. The participants were a mix of outdoor instructors, walk leaders and environmental volunteers.
"Brilliant. Far better than expected"
" Thanks for running an excellent course. This was NOT dull or condescending and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience"
"The slides used to support the sessions were very well prepared. All the equipment and resources were excellent"
Paul's variety of experience across the outdoor sector combined with his practical first aid experience in Mountain Rescue and event first aid cover enables him to adapt the course to suit individual needs.
