We are delighted to have been awarded a grant by Skills for Care to provide training for employers and, for the first time, Personal Assistants during 2017/18.

We will continue to provide our successful “Being a Good Employer” training course, which we have provided for a number of years and has had very positive feedback from people who have attended.

This year, for the first time, we will also be providing modular training courses on a range of topics which are relevant to employers. We are also working with a new training provider to run a training course for Personal Assistants.

The courses are also available to people who receive a direct payment from the local authority, or those who use their own funds to employ a Personal Assistant to provide them with care and support.

If you wish to find out more or to sign up for the training, contact DASL’s direct payments team on 020 7501 8960 or by email to
