Brief Description

Grants to support the work of voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations and parish councils for charitable activities addressing local needs throughout Suffolk, particularly those where there is a direct link with food and drink.

Criteria

The criteria of the fund reflects the desire of the food and drink industry to come together to make a difference to the lives of those living in Suffolk.

Grants up to £2,000 are available to support the work of voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations and parish councils addressing local needs throughout Suffolk, particularly those where there is a direct link to food and drink.

The fund supports projects addressing one or more of the following themes:

  • Improving health and well-being – providing emergency food provisions, providing meals and refreshments to help bring communities together, supporting those experiencing challenges in their lives.
  • Overcoming problems – helping people who are experiencing difficult circumstances due to mental ill health, bereavement or financial difficulty.

Grants may fund existing services or facilities and new initiatives and projects. They can contribute to either capital costs such as funding new equipment or support on-going running costs. This is a small fund with grants typically up to a maximum of £2,000. However, larger grants may be available if the project is exceptional. If you are interested in a larger grant, please speak to a Grants Officer first on 01473 602602.

 

Please note that this fund may close early if oversubscribed.
