Man getting his nails cut


The aim of the partnership is to enable all members to have access to appropriate training for their staff which ensures that they provide the best level of care to their service users.

Partners can access the Workforce Development Fund (WDF) from Skills For Care through the partnership to help recover some of the costs of providing QCF training for staff.

Partners must complete a membership form and their Natonal Minimum Dataset (NMDS) must be up to date in order to claim.  Claims are paid on the basis of relevent evidence being provided.
