Community Food & Health Scotland which aims to promote healthy eating habits within low-income communities has announced that its Capacity Building Fund is open for applications.
The aim of the fund is to support groups and agencies running food and health activities to build the knowledge, skills and expertise they need to help them deliver their activities better. Groups can apply for funding for training or learning opportunities for staff, volunteers, management committees or Board members.
The maximum grant that groups can apply for is £500. Organisations that are eligible to apply include community groups, voluntary organisations or social enterprises. There is no closing date for applications: the capacity building fund will close once all of the funding for this year has been awarded.
All monies awarded will need to be spent by the end of March 2016.
