Household Support Fund Allocation Survey – Support For Organisations In Liverpool

Feeding Liverpool has been allocated a proportion of the Household Support Fund to support the food supplies of emergency food providers and community food spaces over the next few months. This is to enable these organisations to continue to support households experiencing food insecurity.

To receive a proportion of the Household Support Fund that can be spent on food supplies, emergency food providers and community food spaces must:

  • Fulfil all the criteria on the ‘eligibility criteria’ page of the survey below
  • Complete the survey in full
  • Agree to provide monitoring data on how this resource has been spent

The full terms of any allocation of funding will be set out in a partnership agreement with Feeding Liverpool.

The primary purpose of this fund is for organisations to purchase food supplies to enable their existing activities to continue. The funding can only be spent on food stock. Recognising the increased pressures on organisations this winter in terms of their own energy bills, we are also able to offer eligible organisations a grant of £500 towards these costs.

To enable us to make a fair allocation of funds, during this survey you will be asked how many people you provided regular food support for during the week Monday 17th June – Sunday 23rd June 2024. Please have this information on hand when completing the survey.

If this was not a typical week for your organisation, you will be asked to choose another week in June which better represents your activity. You will have the opportunity to provide details about any of the following types of regular food support your organisation provides:

  • Emergency food parcels
  • Community food spaces (for example, food pantries, food unions, community markets and community shops)
  • Community meals/meals which are included as part of an activity tour organisation offers
  • Any other regular food support your organisation offers

This funding cannot be used to support food-related activities which are aimed solely at people aged under 18 years old (for example, a primary school breakfast club or after school club).

The deadline for applying for this funding is 11:59pm on Wednesday 31st July. 

Unfortunately, without exception, any organisation whose survey response is received after the deadline will not be eligible for this fund.

We need to take care to not ‘double fund’ any work, so, if some of your food support work is in partnership with another organisation (for example, St Andrew’s Community Network or The Big Help), please liaise with them about who is best placed to receive the funds for that type of provision.

Please note, your organisation should complete this survey to apply even if you received funding via Feeding Liverpool’s Househould Support Fund in September 2023.

If you have any questions, please email Gentian Khan.
