CFHS funding offer to take part in research around cooking skills
CFHS is pleased to invite applications from groups and agencies working with or within the community or voluntary sector to take part in research that we are currently commissioning. We are offering fixed funding of £500 per application and will fund three groups or agencies in total. The closing date for applications is Wednesday 3 October.
The funding is available to groups or agencies that have delivered cookery course(s) in the last year using one of the following approaches: a) hands-on cookery courses delivered to parents (or carers) learning cookery together with their children within a group b) hands-on cookery courses delivered to young people only (up to the age of 16) learning within a group c) hands-on cookery courses delivered to parents only (of nursery or school aged children) learning within a group
The fixed funding is available to cover costs involved in the research, such as staff or volunteer time to arrange cookery course participants to attend a focus group or/and one-to-one interviews with researchers, and venue hire or crèche costs (if required). Each applicant must be able to involve 10 participants (from one or more of the same course(s) in research activities. They must also have evaluated the course(s) and be able to provide evaluation materials to researchers.
Microfunding – increasing access to local food
CFHS is looking for applications for funding from community food intiatives that want to increase access to locally grown fruit and vegetables in their communities. Groups can apply for up to £1000 to develop ideas to make this happen.
The funding programme runs until the end of March 2013, but will close once all the funding has been allocated. For details of how to apply, please read the Further information (PDF 29 kb) or contact Anne Gibson
