This year’s capacity building fund and development funding programmes are now open for applications.
The aim of the capacity building fund is to support groups and agencies running food and health activities to build the knowledge, skills and expertise they need to help deliver these better. Groups can apply for funding of up to £500 for training or learning opportunities for staff, volunteers, management committee or board members.
The aim of the annual development fund is to support Scotland’s low-income communities to improve their access to, and take-up of, a healthy, varied and balanced diet. It is ideal for groups and agencies with a food and health activity planned that can be developed, recruited for, and run within a one-year period. Between £500-£2000 is available.
