The funding under the Advice Services Transition Fund to deliver training courses on Disability Benefits across the whole of Worcestershire and surrounding counties has finished. However due to the success of the project if your organisation would like training then please contact us.  Our service is however very busy so we are not always in a position to help.

Linda Baldwin is our appointed Training Officer. Linda has 30 years experience of working for the Department of Work and Pensions within numerous roles including: Social Fund Inspector, District Training Officer and a Benefits Team Leader. She has also been the Principle Welfare Benefits Adviser for DIAL South Worcestershire for the past twelve years.

Training Courses for 2018

  • Basic Guide to Claiming Personal Independence Payment
  • A Guide to Claiming Attendence Allowance
  • A basic Guide to claiming Disability Living Allowance for children under 16
  • Introduction to Disability Benefits
  • Basic Guide to Claiming Employment and Support Allowance

We can either deliver this in house or we can provide a training venue in Worcester City.  A workbook will be provided for every delegate.

Please talk to us about your training requirements. We will try and be as flexible as possible to meet the needs of your staff team. If you require training exclusively to your organisation we can ensure the training is specific and relevant to your staff needs.

We are offering these high quality courses at a reasonable rate so call Linda on 01905 22191 for a quote and to discuss requirements.
