£2.4m funding for a learning and development programme for the adult social care workforce supporting people with dementia

The Department of Health has recently commissioned Skills for Care to support the delivery of a national learning and development programme for the adult social care workforce supporting people with dementia. As a result, Skills for Care announced yesterday that they will make up to £2.4m available to employers through the Workforce Development Fund to support the completion of relevant accredited qualifications by those members of the workforce who support people with dementia. Skills for Care will need to receive applications for funding by 14 August.

      Excellent post and I agree. Art is a wonderful mehtod of expression and allied to ones own creativity it is very personal. It is not easy to blame or criticize one who is not an artist under normal circumstances and so much easier to praise effort and give constructive comment. It is almost always not only welcome, but it engages the receiver in a positive together relationship, with benefits that surely will be the start of a new outlook and even life.

    We would be interested in more details on how to obtain funding for training, we presently employ 2 staff over a 24 hour period for acutely confused or delirium type illness or worsening of demetia state through illness and a development programme for staff would be brilliant.

      I still think the larger lseosn is probably still true you keep a portion of your population out of the workforce and it’s not good for the economy. Who knows how much stronger those economies might be if they had a large measurable contribution from women (or how much weaker if women weren’t playing a role in Africa).

    So you’re blaming a pivarte corporation’s mistakes on the government? That sounds really 70 ish.No matter what happens to you, it’s always the gov’ment s fault.And you’re not looking at other countries.Look at the Scandinavian countries.Here in Denmark, the current government is trying to privatize everything, like it is in the US, but it’s sending our economy to hell. Ironic, right?
