Funding for people using Personal Health Budgets
Wednesday 7th October
People who have a Personal Health Budget (PHB), and who employ a personal assistant (PA), can now, as part of a pilot, apply for individual employer funding from Skills for Care to cover the full cost of care related training for both themselves and their PA(s).
This funding is being paid by Skills for Care on behalf of NHS England as part of a pilot scheme running from September 2015. Funding is limited and employers are encouraged to submit an early application to avoid disappointment. Funding will be issued on a first come first served basis subject to applications meeting the funding criteria.
For more information about the funding, including examples of the sort of training that employers might apply for, visit Skills for Care website.
