As a Leicestershire County Council provider, you have access to an exclusive 25% discount.

One of the questions raised in the session was whether the Infection Prevention and Control Fund can be used to pay for a Care Friends license. We are still awaiting the next set of eligibility criteria for this fund, but have been advised that it is likely that it will be possible to use this money for the license.

To take advantage of this offer, please confirm your interest in purchasing a license by Thursday 15 October.
