As the leading provider of trusted, impartial advice and information on daily living equipment in the UK, DLF is an excellent partner to work with when delivering on-going training and development to your staff.
We run training courses for those working with disabled and older people, to ensure quality person centred care is delivered within best practice guidelines. We focus on practical hands-on scenarios, using a wide range of equipment to assist with personalised independent living goals.
Our open courses are run at regular intervals and take place at range of venues. We can, by arrangement, also run courses at a location supplied by you.
