Training grant – Eskdale Mill

“AIM has been very supportive of Eskdale Mill & Heritage Trust’s objective of supporting their staff’s professional development and provision of essential core training.

Lakes First Aid are a reputable provider of several types of first aid training in the Lake District area and supply training endorsed by ‘First Aid Industry Body’.

The Emergency 1st Aid at Work training that our Mill Manager received in November 2023 has updated her skills repertoire and ensured confidence in responding to a potential emergency situation affecting herself, our volunteers, and customers. As there is a small operations team, it is crucial that she has the skills to identify and know the best course of action. She is reliant on ensuring she can delegate the correct task to the right person and have an effective resolution for recovery and keep everybody safe. As Eskdale Mill is based in a remote location in Eskdale, west Cumbria this makes this training a top priority.

Eskdale Mill & Heritage Trust is a small heritage charity with a limited core budget – this grant is invaluable in helping the charity focus their finances on other essential costs.”
