People who employ their own care staff (individual employers), can apply for funding from Skills for Care to cover the full cost of care related training and development of both themselves and their personal assistants. Courses we've funded to date include First Aid in the Workplace, Holistic Massage and dementia awareness - plus many more. You can also apply for funding for qualifications such as the Diplomas in Health & Social Care and Apprenticeships.

Applications must be received by 28th February 2014 and all learning or qualifications must be paid for and started before 31st March 2014. Subject to Department of Health approval, a new funding round will commence in April 2014.
