Following a successful bid to DEFRA in 2014 the West of England Rural Network has established a Local Action Group (LAG) to manage a LEADER Programme for the West of England between 2015 – 2020 to deliver the approved Local Development Strategy.

The West of England has been allocated £1.4M for the programme period and more details can be found on the West of England Rural Development Programme website.

Grants of between £10 000 and 100 000 are available for projects within the rural West of England which meet the eligibility criteria and are a good fit with the priorities identified by the local community as detailed in the local development strategy.

There are 80 LEADER Groups throughout rural England and more details can be found on the Defra RDPE Site
