Our capacity building fund and our annual development fund are now open for applications.
The capacity building fund aims 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 for training or learning opportunities for staff, volunteers, or management committee or board members. Up to £500 is available.
The closing date for capacity building funding is Friday 8 December, or earlier if all the funding available has already been allocated.
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. We encourage applicants to consider how some or all of their planned activities could be sustained after the funding has been spent.
The closing date for development funding applications is Friday 4 August 2017.
