Whitewater Active is a trading name of Safe and Sound Outdoors (2007) Ltd. With over 25 years of trading we are a well established outdoor activity company. Originally set up by Jim Jayes, the business was bought by Safe and Sound Outdoors in 2013. We retained the service of a number of previous staff and have expanded our staff team as a result of the purchase.
We currently employ 3 full time members of staff and have a number of highly skilled and qualified freelance staff on our team. We provide high quality outdoor activities in a range of subjects. We are registered with AALA who oversee all of our activities delivered to under 18’s. We also subscribe to IOL and have an LOTC quality badge.
Safe and Sound Outdoors(2007) Ltd was set up by Craig Forde in 2007 with the aim of the company being to offer good, quality outdoor education to schools and youth groups using a small focused group of instructors dedicated in their chosen field. In addition to offering high quality outdoor education we have also in recent years begun focusing in different areas in particular staff training and development and Duke of Edinburgh Awards. We have worked with a number of clients including Shropshire County Council, New Reflexions, BT, Yoursuresave.com amongst many in offering first aid courses and staff training and development.
Since 2007 we have grown to our current size with our staff team but still focus on our aims that we set at the start of delivering high quality. We bought Whitewater Active to expand our activity portfolio yet still retain our excellent service.
