Living Well on a Budget

Posted on 21st July 2017 by Lauren Parry

The Living Well on a Budget project helps households across Fife to:

  • Make the most of food expenditure by planning and cooking healthy meals and wasting less food
  • Take more control of household budgets
  • Stay warm more affordably by managing energy use and bills better

Living Well on a Budget has two strands:

  • Home energy advice visits (visit Cosy Kingdom for more information)
  • Living Well on a Budget food courses

Living Well on a Budget food courses are delivered over 6 sessions and include practical cooking sessions, basic nutrition and food handling and learning how to make healthy, simple and low-cost meals at home. Additionally, each course includes:

This course is unique in that participants can access varied support and advice in one programme without having to go elsewhere. We run courses that are open to the public and we also run specific courses for some groups and organisations.
