Community Food and Health Annual Development Fund

Community Food and Health (Scotland) has launched the 2017 round of its Annual Development Fund.

Community Food and Health (CFHS) offers funding to groups and organisations working with or within Scotland’s low-income communities to improve access to, and take-up of, a healthy, varied and balanced diet.

Annual Development grants of between £500 and £2,000 are available to groups and agencies that can develop, recruit for, and complete food and health activities by the end of September 2018.

Planned activities must be one or more of the following:

  • A new activity.
  • Developing or improving an existing activity.
  • Extending the range or scale of a food related activity that the applicant already does – such as offering the activity in a new area or with a different type of group.
  • Helping to develop the applicant’s activities to sustain them in the long term – such as training staff or volunteers (or both) to provide food-related activities or buying new equipment that the applicant will use well into the future.
  • A pilot or feasibility study.

CFHS prefers to fund community groups, voluntary organisations or social enterprises; but will consider applications from agencies such as the NHS, schools or other local authority organisations if they work closely with community groups.

The deadline for applications is 4 August 2017 (5pm).
