The Coalfields Food Insecurity Response Fund

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis


The Coalfields Food Insecurity Response Fund is a new fund to tackle food poverty. We have seen a significant rise over recent years in the coalfields of the number of projects providing food to those who cannot afford it. The Covid-19 pandemic has exacerbated this problem with more people being referred to food banks, and tens of thousands of children skipping meals due to family income being too low.

Did you know Community Centres, Village Halls, Scout Groups and Charities are eligible to apply for the Government Small Business Grant?

Closing date: 21 August 2020


Applications are still being taken for the Government Small Business Grant, so far we have distributed over £26m. There are however organisations who have not provided us with their bank details and we have been unable to issue payment.  An online form is available here to apply. They will be asked to upload proof of bank details if not currently paying rates by direct debit.
