Individual employer funding

Skills for Care are once again accepting applications for funding for 2014-2015 towards training costs.

People who employ their own care staff (individual employers), can apply for this funding  to cover the full cost of care related training and development of both themselves and their personal assistants.

Individual employers aged 18 or over can apply for this funding on behalf of themselves or their personal assistants. If an application is successful, we will usually notify the individual employer within 30 days and arrange payment directly into their bank account.  

All learning and qualifications must be paid for and started after the 1st April 2014 and before the 31st March 2015; the closing date for applications is the 27th February 2015. This funding covers England only. Funding for successful applications is subject to Department of Health approval of funding.

A leaflet about the funding can be downloaded here or copies can be requested via marketing@skillsforcare.org.uk.
