Impact & Feedback

Positive Feedback from Employers

“Just wanted to say how fantastic and supportive Martine has been. She is very patient, understanding and explains things in a very easy way. She is a pleasure to speak with.”

Shelagh Elman – December 2020 – Adult Care Worker L2

“We have used other providers in the past, since using your company and having Dawn  Gouldthorpe as the assessor the quality of support and guidance from her to our workforce has been outstanding  she thrives to get the best out of each learner and is highly knowledgeable in her field. This also has a good impact on our organisation due to the cohort sharing and improving not just their own knowledge but also of other that they work with.

Jules Westbrook the business manager keeps our organisation up today with any changes to funding and very supportive to the business. Like Dawn she is very friendly approachable, and nothing is too much trouble.

The process from the start to the end is hassle free. I would have no hesitation in  recommend DH associates for anyone looking to improve the standard of their workforce.”

Jan Stephenson – Homecare Mellor – December 2020

“Good afternoon Jules, I want to thank you for all the hard work and patience you have had with me to help me get set up with the Modern Apprenticeship training and funding. I could not have done this without your help and support. Independent Option would not be able to offer this kind of training to staff and in the past I have found it very hard to access funding, so your help and support has been very much appreciated.

Not only have you been helpful but your patience in guiding me through the process has been outstanding.  I never thought we could get the amount of money that we have been offered. It’s amazing!

So once again…thanks..I can’t stop smiling today”

Dawn Gouldthorpe is my trainer and she is absolutely brilliant she has supported me thoroughly and helped me to learn and develop into a confident and excellent support worker and mentor, with her continued support and motivation I have excelled. “

Elaine – Community Supported Living – November 2020

“I am writing to thank DH Associates for supporting community’s team of young adult apprentices in achieving their Business Administration Level 3 standard.

Our apprentices are now entering traineeships and will be working towards specialist qualifications with digital & marketing and project management. I would be appreciative if arrangements could be made to have all certificates sent to Community Head Office, marked for my attention, so that we can arrange an award ceremony in recognition of their good work.

In addition, on behalf of the General Secretary, the Senior Leadership Team, Alexandra, Daniel and Declan I would like to specifically thank Trainer, Vicky Lawrence for her steadfast commitment and support given in working with our apprentices.

We hope to work with you again in the future.”
