Information for large national organisations

This information is relevant for large national organisations who are Workforce Development Fund (WDF) grant holders.


New grant holders need to complete the organisation declaration form before you can access the WDF. Grant holders who have accessed WDF directly from Skills for Care in previous years do 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.

Further information can be found in the guidance document.

Once you're ready to claim, you’ll need to complete your claim form and a grant holder claims submission form for every claim made and submit your completed forms to us by 31 May 2021. All qualifications and learning programmes claimed for must feature on the list of funded qualifications and learning.
