Annual development fund now closed

Community Food and Health (Scotland) has an annual development fund available for groups and agencies in Scotland that wish to improve access to, and take up of, a healthy, varied and balanced diet.

Funding from £500 to £2000 is available and funding recipients are expected to spend their money within one year.

The 2016 development fund has now closed.

We will write to all 2016 development fund applicants in early October 2016 to let them know if their application has been successful or not.

We plan to run a development fund in 2017. Further information will be available on this website and in our free newsletter, Fare Choice.

What will we fund?

The development fund is open to groups and agencies that would like to tackle one or more of the barriers to healthy eating, such as affordability or availability, and the negative impact of culture and lack of food skills.

For more information on what we will or will not fund, please see our guidance notes. Please note that these are 2016 versions that may be updated in 2017.

Who can apply?/Who can’t apply

We welcome applications from groups and agencies working with or within low-income communities throughout Scotland.

Individuals and/or private companies cannot apply for a grant from us.
