Introducing… Life Saving Training

We have such a wide variety of businesses here at Clavering House Business Centre that we wanted to give them the opportunity to introduce themselves. Next to feature in our ‘Introducing…’ section are:

Life Saving Training

It’s a sad fact, but 6 out of 10 people who die through injury in the UK, die needlessly - because they could have been saved by basic First Aid. More than half of people who have ever completed a First Aid course in the past, don’t have the confidence to help.

Life Saving Training has been cleverly designed to combat this big problem by creating resourceful and confident First Aiders, who have the confidence and skills to help in real life emergencies.

There’s no point in simply going through the motions and completing a box-ticking exercise is there? It’s our mission to transform people’s experiences of First Aid training, save more lives and better protect businesses.

All our training is environment specific, practical, engaging and effective. Our qualifications are regulated and will keep you fully compliant with the Health and Safety Executive.

But don’t just take our word for it. Our customers agree that our modern approach to training is the best around - with the highest number of 5 star Google reviews of any First Aid training provider in the region!

We also offer Health & Safety training such as Manual Handling and Fire Safety and have a wide range of approved Health & Safety eLearning courses too. Something for everyone.

If you’re bored of the same old, outdated and ineffective training that’s around, please get in touch. We’d love to help and show you there’s a different way…

Work Smarter By Outsourcing Your Admin

A guest post by Emily Ballantyne, P.A. Pal

So, you own your own business. You've got a great a product or service and you know your market, but the problem is there never seems to be enough hours in the day to make the most of your business, sometimes the best use of your time is to outsource ... That's where a freelance P.A. comes in.


A freelance P.A. can do all the things that an office based P.A. can do (apart from make the tea!) but with only a fraction of the cost. You only need to pay a freelance P.A. for the work that you need doing, with none of the other associated costs like sick pay or holiday pay etc.

The kind of skills you can expect from a freelance P.A. are:

  • Traditional P.A. services - correspondence, report writing, quotes, invoicing, paying invoices, online banking, diary management etc.
  • Social media - this is often something that small businesses either don't have the time, or the knowledge to use fully. A freelance P.A. can prepare content, design and schedule posts for a number of social media channels in order to maximise your coverage, and generate interest in your business
  • Advertising and marketing - a freelance P.A. can work with you to put together an effective advertising strategy, including creative briefs/working with designers, content, media bookings and more
  • Project or event management - if you're struggling to coordinate everything for a project or event, a freelance P.A. can ensure that things run smoothly, on time and within budget
  • Research - searching out that elusive product or gift, travel, competitor analysis and market research all come under the remit of a freelance P.A.
  • GDPR - if you're unsure how to become GDPR compliant, a freelance P.A. can complete the whole process for you

Most freelance P.A.'s have skills above and beyond what I've listed here, so if your requirements aren't covered, just ask ...

I have put together a range of discounted pricing options for using P.A. Pal especially for Clavering House tenants, starting from just £10 an hour.

I’d love to hear from you, so please get in touch to discuss how I can help you and your business.,

We Now Have The Most Hygienic Meeting Rooms In The City Centre!

Thanks to Sanondaf Newcastle an innovative ‘touch-less’ hygiene services company, Clavering House can proudly announce it has the most hygienic meeting room facilities in the city of Newcastle upon Tyne.


Sanondaf Newcastle business owner Christopher Traynor said when asked about the work being carried out:

“Sanondaf Newcastle are pleased to be a part of Clavering House’s continual investment into first class meeting room and office space facilities. It’s refreshing to see the great lengths Clavering House are taking to make sure the client experience is the best in the city”.


Sanondaf Newcastle have a patented environmentally friendly disinfectant that kills 99.99% of bacteria, viruses, yeasts and moulds yet poses no harm to humans, animals or plants – unique to the industry. They use electrostatic technology to charge the patented particles, making them attract to every surface providing maximum coverage (even on electrical office equipment and soft furnishings) and at a fraction of the time and cost it would take a ‘hands on cleaner to perform whole room disinfection’. 

When speaking about their new service, Christopher continued:

“Sanondaf Newcastle are the first of it’s kind. We are introducing modern technology to revolutionise the hygiene services market. Conventional methods of cleaning are scientifically proven to be ineffective, time consuming and thereby costly. While we are not replacing the need to clean, we are using science to take hygiene to the next level, resulting in fewer bacterial and viral outbreaks such as Staphylococcus, C-diff, norovirus and the Flu virus. Healthy environments, mean healthy people. We are currently working in sectors such as NHS Trusts, Care homes, Nurseries, office spaces, gyms, residential homes and many more. We are endorsed by the Institute of Specialist Surveyors & Engineers and the Healthy Homes campaign, a NHS backed charitable organisation aiming to reduce illness caused by inadequate home hygiene – an estimated £20 Billion cost to the NHS”.

Prices start from £50 + VAT
