  • Brexit funds for people struggling to afford food - an extra 1 million

    Created: 25/09/2019

    An extra £1 million has been made available for community projects which help low-income households to eat.  Please see the Scottish Government announcement here

    The Government has considered that a ‘no deal’ Brexit is likely to push more people into poverty and result in rising food costs. The charity FareShare will use the additional funding to support organisations like community cafes, food parcel providers and holiday clubs that provide essential support for people struggling to afford healthy meals.
