What is a Trusted Assessor?

A ‘Trusted Assessor’ is a person who, when trained, will be able to assess for and prescribe a simple solution or a basic piece of equipment to meet the needs of an individual.

It is the Government’s vision that this will alleviate both Occupational Therapists’ time and also waiting lists. This will comply with the new reforms in Transforming Community Equipment and The Retail Model.

The Disabled Living Foundation is a national charity providing impartial advice, information and training on independent living since 1969. DLF has worked hard to tailor their training to meet individual job roles  - this could be, amongst others, Handy Persons, Occupational Therapist Assistants, Retailers and Housing Associations.

Module 2:  Assessing competently and confidently

Module 3:  The environment and how minor adaptations can assist with independence

Module 4:  Living with disability
