Temporary Break to LEADER Programme
We have recently been informed by the Scottish Government that, due to the uncertainty following the vote to leave the EU, the LEADER Programme will be temporarily paused until January 2017. This is so that the Scottish Government can take on board any developments arising from the UK Governments Autumn Statement on the 24th November and reassess all EU funding Programmes with a view to making a statement on LEADER's future in January 2017.
We are very sorry for any problems that this causes you if you were planning to apply to LEADER but we hope to be in a position to award grants again in early 2017 and we are very keen to continue to work with you on your projects in the intervening period.
We will continue to keep you updated on any developments through this website as we are updated.
