WHAT IS THE WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT FUND?

The Workforce Development Fund (WDF) is a funding stream from the Department of Health and Social Care, distributed by Skills for Care. WDF makes a substantial contribution to the costs of care staff gaining qualifications. The fund enables care employers to have a continuing commitment to staff learning and development by enhancing their learning and development budgets.

AM I ELIGIBLE TO CLAIM WDF FROM CAHSC?

This fund is available to all adult social care providers in Cornwall, Devon and the Isles of Scilly. You must become a WDF Partnership member and be registered and compliant on ASC-WDS (previously known as NMDS-SC). If you are not registered with ASC-WDS, you can create an account here.
