Independent Support

We provide a suite of training to support local service providers and Information, Advice and Support Services, under contract to deliver Independent Support.

This includes dedicated accredited training for staff recruited as Independent Supporters as well as useful materials and templates to help them in their important role.

This training is specifically designed to prepare participants for the role of Independent Supporter, therefore those wishing to participate should be nominated by their local Independent Support service provider. However, we have extended the training offer to volunteers who are recruited through Information, Advice and Support Services and local authority staff who could also benefit from the learning. If this is the case, please state the name of your IAS Service or local authority when registering.
