Skills for Care currently has funding available to help individual employers access training for themselves and their personal assistant(s). It is available to help improve the care that is provided to you by improving the skills of your personal assistant.
People aged 18 years or older who directly employ their own care or support staff can now apply for funding from Skills for Care to cover the full cost of training. For more information, please visit www.skillsforcare.org.uk/individualemployerskillsfunding.
You can also contact your local authority, which may provide free access to training for you and your personal assistant.
