On receiving the green light from Tyne Esk LEADER in October 2016, North Berwick respite care home Leuchie House set to recruiting their Volunteer Development Co-Ordinator who has now been in place since January 2017.
The temporary break in the LEADER Programme that was due to take place following the UK Government’s Autumn Statement on the 23th November. We have just been informed that the Scottish Government will honour any grant commitments made over this period and so the pause we announced earlier will no longer apply. While we still do not know of an exact end date to the LEADER Programme, the Scottish Government have confirmed that they intend to honour grant commitments for the foreseeable future, which we anticipate being till spring 2019 at least.
We have reinstated our application deadline of 5th December 2016 for a Local Action Group meeting in February 2017.
We are very pleased to be able to launch a new website for the new Tyne Esk LEADER Programme. You are now able to find up to date information on the Tyne Esk LEADER 2014-2020 Programme such as the Local Development Strategy and Business Plan, details of the Local Action Group and of the LEADER staff team who are available to help applicants access the fund.
