This training is free if you earn less than £16,009 a year and have lived in the UK, EU or EEA for three years before the start of the course.

You may also be eligible for funding if you don't meet this criteria but do support someone who has their care needs met through a direct payment.

The training is provided through Norfolk County Council Adult Learning. There are various courses, some of which can lead to accredited qualifications:
