Individual employers, Do you need money for training?


If you employ your own care and support staff using a direct payment, a personal health budget (PHB), or your own money, you can apply to Skills for Care to get money for training for you and your personal assistant. The money that is available is called individual employer funding. Here are some examples of the type of  training you could use the money for:

  • Moving and assisting
  • First aid
  • Communication
  • Dementia Awareness
  • Diabetes awareness
  • Risk assessment
