FREE TRAINING – for employers and Personal Assistants

Greenwich Association of Disabled People (GAD) in Partnership with Bromley Experts by Experience (X by X) are delighted to launch a new 6 month project funded by Skills for Care.  This is aimed at building the skills and expertise of ‘Individual Employers’ (self funders are welcome! ) and their Personal Assistants.

From September we will be running monthly peer support forums and training sessions where Individual Employers can share information and tips, discuss barriers and build their skills and confidence.

This project is open to Individual Employers living in: Bromley, Lewisham, Greenwich and Southwark. Reasonable travel expenses and support costs can be covered.  Our Disabled People’s Organisations will run monthly training sessions covering areas that Individual Employers have told us are important to them when recruiting and employing Personal Assistants Reasonable replacement support costs will be considered for individual employers whose personal assistants are taking part in the training.
