Minority ethnic communities

We work to strengthen food and health work across minority ethnic communities and have provided funding for research, nutrition training, development of case studies and networking. In 2012-13 this included a focus on maternal and infant nutrition and the development of practice to support activity in this area.

Our plan for 2017/18

There is no specific work planned around this theme for this year, but we will continue to take opportunities to take this forward within our general work with community food initiatives, and support, if applicable, through our funding opportunities
