Drawing down funding to support workforce development is central to what we do. In fact, we’ve brought in £900k for the period 2016-2020/21.

At CAHSC we regularly submit bids to other funding bodies and lobby for additional investment to develop the skills and knowledge of care staff in Cornwall and Devon.
This page is regularly updated with our latest funding successes, with information on how they can help you and your organisation.

Current funding opportunities

The Workforce Development Fund

Funding deadline extended until 31st May 2022

We currently have a total of £236,000 of funding available through the Workforce Development Fund following a successful bid to Skills for Care.

The fund enables care employers to have a continuing commitment to staff learning and development by enhancing learning and development budgets.

The Workforce Development Grant is funded by the Department of Health and Social Care, with bids invited on an annual basis.
