The new Moray LEADER Programme is launching this spring!

The brand new Moray LEADER programme is coming soon, with a budget of around £3.5 million to support communities and businesses across Moray, in line with the Moray Local Development Strategy.

LEADER is a bottom-up method of delivering support to communities for rural development. Its aim is to increase support to local rural community and business networks to build knowledge and skills and encourage innovation and cooperation in order to tackle local development objectives. You can find out more about LEADER in Scotland on the Scottish Rural Network website.

Moray LEADER’s new team will be in place in March 2017 and the official launch of the programme will take place shortly after that, complete with updated website and full information on the funding and support available.
