The Returners grant fund supports women returning to work after caring for others. We have launched public sector returner programmes and grant funding to support private sector programmes. Most recently we announced £500,000 of funding to help those with additional barriers – such as those with disabilities or who have experienced domestic abuse - to re-enter labour market.
