Registering subsidiaries that you want to claim funding for

Following your grant award, you’ll need to ensure you have completed an organisation declaration form (new grant holders only) or confirmed the subsidiaries. It should include the names of all subsidiaries that you intend to claim funding for. 

Any grant holder who has accessed WDF directly from Skills for Care in previous years does not need to complete a new declaration form unless they are linking new establishments to their grant. By continuing to access the fund, employers are bound by the current terms
