WELCOME

Welcome to the Unite Wales Union Learning Fund (WULF) website.

WULF is funded by Welsh Government to support union led adult learning for workers across Wales. 

What We Do

The Unite WULF project supports workers across all sectors in Wales, whether they be employed in healthcare, education, manufacturing, construction, hospitality, retail, transportation, public services, or any other industry. Our aim is to provide assistance and support to workers from diverse sectors with their learning and development needs.

We’ve Got It Covered

Training

Our comprehensive learning solutions cover a range of needs, from e-learning to online and face-to-face formats. We are equipped to support you in various areas, including achieving your career goals, enhancing professional development, providing training for redeployment, offering assistance during redundancy, and much more. Whatever your learning requirements may be, we are here to help.

Mental Health & Wellbeing

17 million working days are lost annually due to stress, anxiety, and depression. Creating positive working environments is key in preventing stress, enabling individual growth, and enhancing productivity while reducing mental health-related absences. We at Unite WULF believe an inclusive team approach to long-term wellbeing  can help and are developing a toolkit to aid in improving workplace wellbeing.

Supporting Workers

Change can sometimes be forced upon us by external factors beyond our control.  Other times, we may decide for ourselves that it’s time to change direction or push forward with our career plans.  Whatever the reason, the Unite WULF project is here to help by providing advice, guidance, training and signposting to other relevant supports and funding.

Working with Employers

The Unite WULF project works with individuals and employers to provide support for professional development and upskilling. Their work extends to various initiatives in Wales, such as assisting employers in transitioning to carbon neutrality, providing MEWP (Mobile Elevated Work Platforms) training, and helping young people into work.

Relevant and Accessible Training

The UNITE WULF Pathways to Progress project operates on a demand-led basis, meaning that it tailors its services and support according to the specific needs and requirements of individuals or organisations. By adopting a demand-led approach, we ensure that all resources and initiatives are responsive to the evolving needs of participants, allowing for more effective and relevant support.

Most of the training and support we organise and deliver is either co-funded by employers or free.

Menopause Campaign

supporting women

We all feel a little frayed around the edges at times, but did you know that one in ten women going through the menopause are quitting their jobs because of their symptoms?

Unite WULF are committed to raising awareness of menopause and in promoting understanding of this important issue in all workplaces. 

Our goal is to prioritise menopause education, provide resources, and foster a supportive environment for individuals experiencing peri-menopause, menopause and post-menopause symptoms.
