Coronavirus Covid-19 Update

The safety of both our staff and customers is paramount at this time, so to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus, training courses, whether in-house or external courses, are being delivered on-line only for the foreseeable future. Off-site consultancy continues as usual.

The Benefits Directory is available throughout this pandemic period and can be used by homeworkers in the same way as working in the office. Demonstrations will be via virtual meetings.

We at LADL are fully committed to supporting all our customers throughout this difficult time; we do however ask for your patience due to a huge increase in demand for our services.

Above all we wish you all the very best of health in the coming months; stay well and keep safe!
