How the Workforce Development Fund can help employers

Since its launch in 2011, the Workforce Development Fund (WDF) has helped to support over 140,000 learners complete adult social care qualifications and learning programmes. It provides social care employers in England with a means to offer learning and development opportunities to their workforce, which otherwise may not be possible due to the cost.

The fund is a limited pot of money which SfC disburse on behalf of the Department of Health and Social Care. It can be used as a contribution towards the costs of employers completing qualifications and learning programmes.
