SEN Session on Ending the Need for Foodbanks: a draft national plan

Date and Time of Event:  12/01/2022 at 2:30 pm

DETAILS:

Opportunity to input to the SG consultation 'Ending the Need for Foodbanks: a draft national plan' from social enterprise perspective.

The Scottish Government is currently carrying out a consultation to seek views on their vision and approach to ending the need for food banks as a primary response to food insecurity and is inviting further suggestions to shape a national plan.

The draft national plan sets out what the Scottish Government are currently doing and what more they intend to do, alongside others, to end the need for food banks as a primary response to food insecurity.

Given the valuable work that many SEN members undertake in this area and the key insights social enterprise have in understanding food insecurity, SENScot is keen hear SEN member views. This will enable us to submit a response from a social enterprise perspective and to ensure suggestions from social enterprise to shape the plan are presented to the Scottish Government through this process.

This session is open to all social enterprise with an interest or active in this area. If you are unable to attend the session but would like to input, please email mary@senscot.net to arrange a chat and/or share your views.

This will be an informal session providing social enterprises with the opportunity to share their views, ideas and suggest practical actions, as we work through the consultation questions, as noted below:

1. Do you think that the approach outlined is consistent with the vision to end poverty and the need for food banks? Is there anything else you think should be included?

2. Do you think that the actions underway will help to reduce the need for food banks as a primary response to food insecurity?

3. Do you think that the suggestions for what more we plan to do will help to reduce the need for food banks as a primary response to food insecurity?

4. Is there anything else that you think should be done with the powers we have at a national or local level to reduce the need for food banks as a primary response to food insecurity?

5. Do you have any views on how we intend to measure impact, and what would give you confidence that we are moving in the right direction?

6. Is there anything else that you think should be considered in the development of this plan?

Responses to the consultation are to be submitted by 25 January 2022.
