Are you up to speed with your 'SRBs', your 'RDAs' and your 'LSPs'? Do you know your Neighbourhood Renewal from your Community Chest? And can you explain the difference between a PCT and PCG? If not, and if your work involves improving diets and health through increasing access to food at a local level, then this report is for you! This comprehensive report aims to provide an easy-to-follow reference guide to relevant policy, agencies, funds and schemes which could support food poverty work at the local level.
