1 min read

A family-run first aid training company is set to invest in new technology and take on new members of staff after securing a six-figure funding package. 

Cannock-based Safe Haven Training has received a joint six-figure sum from business investment specialists UKSE and ART Business Loans

The funding will enable the firm to realise their growth plans by investing in a customer relationship management (CRM) system and employ an additional four members of staff to deliver training across the region. 

The company, established in 2012, delivers workplace first aid and health and safety training courses to schools, nurseries, councils and businesses across the West Midlands. 

Owner Shane Bryan said: “To meet demand we are currently using sub-contractors to deliver our training but the funding from UKSE and ART will allow us to recruit additional trainers to join our team of highly qualified professionals.” 

UKSE, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tata Steel UK, provides up to £1 million in equity investment finance to support local businesses in the West Midlands area. 

UKSE regional executive Mike Lowe added: “At UKSE one of our main aims is to help businesses grow and create employment opportunities through innovation.  

“We are thrilled to be able to support Safe Haven Training in realising their growth plans.”  

ART Business Loans are a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) who provide loans to businesses of up to £150,000, for any purpose across the West Midlands. 

ART Business Loans business lending manager Roz Haque said: “Safe Haven Training are a great example of a thriving business looking to innovate and create employment opportunities in the region.”
