According to an announcement on Skills for Care’s website (10 June 2024), the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has suspended any further decisions or communications activity relating to funding under the Adult Social Care Training and Development Fund during the election period.

The announcement says DHSC aims to provide further information when the general election period concludes and they are in a position to do so.

Information on the Fund so far is contained in guidance published on 8 April 2024, available at: Adult Social Care Training and Development Fund: a guide for employers.

The fund is intended to replace the Workforce Development Fund, fulfilling a key commitment in the People at the Heart of Care White Paper.
