Spotlight on...

This month the spotlight is on Food & Education Enterprise CIC (FEE)


Food and Education Enterprise (FEE) is a Community Interest Company supporting local communities to raise aspiration, break down barriers, and improve skills and life chances.

FEE runs a number of projects to help local people - one of the most successful is the food bank project which by 2016 had helped to feed 375 people. The organisation also runs computer courses, English language lessons, a clothing bank, interpreting and translation services and a furniture project.

The TOGS Children Clothing Bank project is used by not only local disadvantaged groups but also by organisations and service providers such as Social Services, British Red Cross and Foundation Derbyshire.

The organisation's training projects help local unemployed people gain certificates and qualifications and ultimately jobs. FEE is currently applying for funding for training projects that will benefit newly arrived refugees and other unemployed people from different backgrounds.

FEE currently share their premises with other organisations that offer help and support to people in need including:

Borderline Arts - an organisation that helps people with borderline personality disorder through arts therapy. Click to visit the website.

Wellbeing Works - an organisation that provides group programmes to help people overcome life challenges and move forward. Click to visit the website.
