What is LEADER?

LEADER is a delivery mechanism for funding from the Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE). It uses local knowledge to promote integrated “bottom up”, community-led delivery of part of the RDPE funding. LEADER funding is bound by European rules and regulations and the Local Development Strategy has to align with the national and regional policy framework.

The LEADER programme in the South Pennines is run by a Local Action Group, made up of individuals from the private, public and voluntary sectors. The programme is based at Pennine Prospects in Hebden Bridge.

This drop in session will provide information on the availability of LEADER grants and can give you specific advice and information about applying and the eligibility of your project. Grants usually cover up to 40% of project costs

You will need to register here but you do not need to print out the ticket.
