The Training Hub

Learning about advocacy in health funded processes

NDTi and Kate Mercer Training are launching a new online training hub to support Independent Advocates working alongside people going through health funded processes.

The training programme, funded by NHS England/NHS Improvement, is designed to enhance the skills and knowledge of advocates working within health systems. This specifically includes:

  • Personal Health Budgets (PHBs)
  • Continuing Healthcare (CHC)
  • Section 117 aftercare
  • Personal Wheelchair Budgets

The Hub will include a mix of materials and learning resources including videos, written resources, information, and activities. The Hub has been developed and delivered by NDTi and Kate Mercer Training.

There is no charge to access this training on The Hub.
