  • Food Hygiene Level 1 and 2 – basics of food storage and hygiene. An accredited course. Everyone who completes the course gains useful skills and a certificate.
  • Nutrition Course 1 and 2


Courses available via Community Family Hub West:

  • Starting Solids – practical advice about moving your baby from breast or bottle feeding to solid food.
  • Make it Bake it Shake it – a rolling programme  which involves parents/carers and children together in a safe, friendly, and accessible local venue, where they can enjoy crafts, healthy cooking and get active together


We work alongside other projects where people grow their own food and make the most of the green spaces near their homes. Our recipes include food we’ve grown ourselves. Super healthy!

Our Food Skills team is involved with special needs groups, helping them break down barriers so they too, learn cooking skills, lead a healthier lifestyle, meet new people and become more independent. We support local primary schools in the area encouraging children to Eat Well, Move More, Live Longer.

These projects are supported by Community Family Hub West Team, Change4Life, Newcastle City Council and Community Foundation.
