Food Matters offers support to individuals, groups, organisations and communities building capacity through training and skills development.

Whilst this work is primarily focused on the food sector Food Matters also provides training and consultancy to groups and organisations in other sectors and around issues such as climate change, development planning, waste strategy and community development.

Through the Cookery and Outreach training programme Food Matters is able to support individuals and communities to access healthy affordable diets through increasing their skills and confidence to budget, shop, and cook meals with the resources they have. The Food and Wellbeing programme works with people and organisations to understand how they can use food to help support better mental health.

The approach Food Matters takes to all training programmes is to focus on the participants – assessing their needs and working with them to introduce interventions that lead to positive, long lasting behaviour change around food shopping and budgeting, cooking and eating.

Through the participatory skills training we are able to offer training for individuals and groups aimed at building their capacity to adopt participatory approaches themselves.
