We strongly believe that our greatest achievement will always remain the moment a defibrillator is placed into a school or community. Cariad receives notification on a weekly occurance that a Cariad defibrillator has been used during a rescue within communities across Wales. Knowing that more and more lives are being saved due to Public Access Defibrillators will continue to drive Cariad forward.
Over the past 3 years Cariad has received recognition and awards for the work that we do. We are honoured to have received these and gracefully accept them on behalf of all who support and assist us in our aims.
