What does this mean for us and you?

This new partnership Seeds4Growth meets all four of the CRF criteria and has secured funds that will be used to contribute to the levelling up agenda by investing in people, places, businesses and communities. The partnership will be providing live online training for people who want to learn about working in Care!
