Living Well on a Budget

Posted on 21st July 2017 by Lauren Parry

The Living Well on a Budget project has two strands:

The project helps households across Fife to: 

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

Smart Cooking food courses are delivered over 8 sessions (in partnership with Fife Council Community Food Team). Participants learn how to cook healthy and affordable meals and, how to manage a household budget (with Citizens Advice and Rights Fife).  Additionally, each course includes an energy advice session with our Cosy Kingdom Project. This course is unique in that participants can access varied support and advice in one programme.

Who is the course for? We run courses that are open to the public and we also run specific courses for some groups and organisations. The course is suitable for beginners and anyone wanting to develop cooking and budgeting skills. The course is aimed at low-income households and individuals who would benefit from support with food and household budgeting.

You can see a course in action in this short film.
