Reminder – Free employer training this Monday (22nd August)

Greenwich Association of Disabled People (GAD) in Partnership with Bromley Experts by Experience (X by X) are delighted to launch a new 7 month project funded by Skills for Care which started in July 2016.  This is aimed at building the skills and expertise of ‘Individual Employers’ (self-funders are welcome!) and their Personal Assistants (aka Carers and Care Workers).
