The communities of Fife have benefited from having a LEADER rural development programme since 2000. The 2014-2020 Fife LEADER Programme is a new programme worth £3.4million, covering rural areas within North East and South West Fife. The programme will support community projects, rural businesses and farm diversification.
Our key priorities are:
Access – Improving access to high quality services, jobs, training opportunities and local amenities
Connectivity – Improving collaborative activities between both businesses and communities, and unlocking tourism potential
Inclusion – Reducing inequalities for residents and empowering communities to deliver more services locally
The vision for the Fife LEADER Programme (2014-2020) is:
“To enhance the quality of life in rural Fife by making a positive contribution towards creating an inclusive and sustainable local economy”
