Building on the success of its Trusted Assessor courses, the Disabled Living Foundation (DLF) has announced two new options to enable assessors of telecare equipment to have a recognised qualification.

Developed over 25 years ago to reduce waiting times, increase independence and decrease risk and hospital admissions, the DLF helped create the Trusted Assessor framework and has been delivering the training ever since.

The Trusted Assessor courses give people who work with elderly and disabled people a recognised qualification and teaches them how to provide advice and carry out basic assessments for independent living equipment so that they can reach more vulnerable people, more quickly.

Now, the DLF says it is offering two new options to its Trusted Assessor offering due to increasing numbers of service providers looking to the telecare arena to find suitable equipment to keep people living safely and independently.

Its two new options are:

  • The new two-day Level 3 accredited course Trusted Assessor – Assessing for Telecare Solutions is available to book via the DLF’s open calendar of courses at venues across the UK or as a commissioned course
  • An alternative one-day course for learners who already have a previous Trusted Assessor qualification or who prefer this one-day option can choose the DLF’s Competency in Telecare Assessment course, which is CPD-accredited

For more information about the new courses or to enquire about bespoke courses, call DLF Training on 0207 289 6111 or email
