Disabled Living has provided Trusted Assessor Training for the Provision of Low Level equipment for the past 10 years. The feedback we receive is very positive with accredited Trusted Assessors enhancing their roles at work. Instead of having to refer to Occupational Therapists for new equipment to be prescribed the time and money saved improved the quality of the persons life by assessing and prescribing low level equipment without waiting for another appointment. The trusted assessor fit's many different roles, from carers to driver fitters.
