The Workforce Development Innovation Fund (WDIF) was created to deliver innovative projects to address key priorities and has helped develop useful resources for the sector. After reviewing its impact the Department of Health and Social Care has decided that in order to reach as wide an audience as possible this funding will be added into the Workforce Development Fund (WDF), which is accessible to all adult social care employers in England.
Therefore from 2020-21 there will no longer be separate WDIF funding. The funds which would have been allocated for this work have instead been added to the WDF.
The Workforce Development Innovation Fund (WDIF) supports innovative projects which increase the skills and knowledge of workers, to improve the quality of care provided.
Adult social care is an ever-evolving sector and this fund supports organisations to be innovative and think differently in the way they deliver their services.
