Funding announced for training housing support workers

The Scottish Government is providing £900,000 during 2019/20 to contribute to the costs of training housing support workers and workers in care at home services working in the voluntary sector. The training must meet registration qualification criteria to be eligible.  The SSSC administers the fund on behalf of the Scottish Government and CCPS is involved in decision making about the use of the fund.

The maximum amount the fund can contribute to the training costs of an individual worker is £1,200 and the maximum amount an organisation can bid for is £24,000.  Applications from medium and smaller sized organisations are particularly welcome.

The deadline for applications is 6th September 2019.
