UK Shared Prosperity Fund

Funding for projects that benefit the community and young people

Funded by UK Government

The Council received £1 million from the UK Shared Prosperity Fund – a central pillar of the UK Government’s Levelling Up agenda to build pride in place and increase life chances across the UK.

The funding supports our ambitious plans to invest in our community, prioritising community hubs and supporting employment and skills for young people.

We invited organisations to apply for funding in November 2023 for projects that are socially inclusive, accessible and will support communities most in need.
