Feeding Britain has secured a grant from the Big Lottery to deliver an advice services project in community food projects across 4 of our local Feeding Britain pilot areas.

The project will ensure that people in food crisis have immediate access to quality advice and case advocacy to tackle the issues that made them vulnerable to hunger. Advice will be in accessible formats, in the community food projects where they first go to seek help.  

The project seeks to:

  • Train community advice volunteers, with direct experience of food poverty and using emergency food services, to act as a 'triage' or gateway service.
  • Provide professional advice workers in each location, who will train, support and monitor volunteers. They will ensure the quality of the advice provided and will also take up more complex cases.
  • Create support networks. The volunteers and advice workers will be part of a national network across the 4 locations, to share learning, access peer support, and identify common issues and emerging trends.

The purpose of the Project Coordinator role is to manage the grant and to coordinate and support project delivery across the 4 pilot areas.

It is a fixed term contract for 2 years ending on 1 February 2021. The post can be based at Feeding Britain’s office in central London, but we will also consider a someone based in or near one of the 4 project areas (Bradford, Bristol, Derbyshire, and Leicester). The post will report to the CEO of Feeding Britain.

This role can be based in any of the four project locations listed below, or the London based office.

The project will be delivered in the following locations:

  1. Bradford
