Care Development East directly funds employers who are based in, or have clients based in, Suffolk.
We can only fund employers who comply with Skills for Care’s NMDS (National Minimum Data Set) requirements. This means you must have completed the paperwork to become a member of our partnership and have updated your organisational workforce information before you can claim funding in any one financial year.
For both QCF and RQF qualifications, once we receive photocopies of the certificates, we will check eligibility, including your NMDS status. We will then submit your claim to skills for care. If your claim is agreed by Skills for Care, we will pay your units on a first come first served basis. We cannot guarantee that all claims will be paid, if your claim is successful we will send you a cheque or pay you directly through BACS for the completed units.
Here you can find all the information, resources, forms and templates to assist you to access funding.
