Training for PA's and Employers


Skills for Care provide funding to provide training courses to Direct Payment employers and their PA's (support workers).

The funding enabled us to provide 27 training courses across Darlington, Middlesbrough and Redcar.

Training options included:

  • First Aid,
  • Manual Handling,
  • Disability Equality
  • Mental Capacity Act.

We delivered training to 40 individual Direct Payment Employers and 31 Personal Assistants. 

This is an opportunity only available to User Led Organisations and this funding has also been secured for the 2019 -2020 programme.
