Living through the Pandemic and being an Individual Employer - 12.30 - 1.30pm

Thursday 19th May

BOOK NOW for FREE online project ECHO training events via Zoom all about Living through the Pandemic and being an Individual Employer.

Everything you need to know about making choices and keeping safe – for you, your family, your friends and of course your PAs. Living and working well through the pandemic.

Four 1-hour online sessions run by friendly people who know their stuff.

Session 2. Thursday 19th May 2022
Keeping safe, minimising infection and managing risk. This is a big one for all of us. We know the pandemic is far from over but with restrictions lifted, testing changed and many people behaving like Covid-19 never existed, how can we be good employers and keep everyone safe?

Session 3. Thursday 23rd June 2022
The role of vaccinations. There’s so much controversy about these. To jab or not to jab, that is the question? And do we only employ people who’re jabbed and boostered up? What about the law? Find out about the science of all this in lay person’s terms. No science degree necessary!

Session 4. Thursday 14th July 2022
Everything you wanted to discuss about covid but were too afraid to ask – moving forward in the pandemic. Your chance to ask and talk about anything Covid. Going out safely? Using PPE? Wiping down shopping? Testing? Letting people in my house? What makes us anxious? Having difficult or awkward Covid conversations with PAs and families.

Each online session is run by the St Luke’s Project ECHO team (this a group of people who have training expertise in areas of healthcare) supported by friendly, approachable people within the NHS, Public Health, Local Authority and Disability Sheffield with expert knowledge about disabilityequality, Direct Payments and/or Covid-19 – it’s a team approach.

Friendly training with a warm welcome, designed with and for the Direct Payments community, to be empowered, stay in control and make choices. All Individual Employers receiving Direct Payments and anyone who supports Individual Employers are welcome. This event is for anybody who employs Personal Assistants and not only those who received Clinically (Extremely) Vulnerable letters or emails during lockdown.

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)
