The Workforce Development Fund

Skills for care

The Workforce Development Fund supports the provision of high quality care and the continuing professional development (CPD) of staff across the adult social care sector by providing a contribution towards the costs of vocational learning. The fund allows you to claim back money towards the costs of workers completing a broad range of adult social care qualifications, learning programmes and digital learning modules. 

To claim funding, an organisation must provide an adult social care service and directly employ care staff within England.

Claim up to £2,000 per employee
