Cariad partnerships & working together to save lives
It is only possible to achieve our aims and objectives by working closely with other organisations, emergency services, schools and communities. We are proud of the relationships that have developed and continue to grow. As a charity we constantly look to work with any organisation, third sector party and company wishing to promote the importance of life saving skills and equipment within our communities.
Mitchell Joseph & Swans Pledge
Following the sad death of Mitchell, 33, who died after suffering a cardiac arrest during a football game at Mynydd Newydd playing fields while playing for Swansea Senior League side St Joseph in January 2018, Swansea City FC teamed up with Cariad and pledged to help his family and the wider community. The season of 2017/18 saw the Swans provide funding for a defibrillator every goal scored following the Liverpool game. This current season 2018/19 the Swans are continuing their support providing funding for defibrillators each game they win.
Keep the Beat Campaign
2018: Cariad teamed up with South Wales Radio Station The Wave, and with help from Swansea City FC attended schools across South Wales promoting the importance of defibrillator.
Since Cariad became a registered charity we understood the importance of working closely with the emergency services across Wales to help reduce the number of deaths caused by out of hospital cardiac arrests. These partnerships continue to grow.
