Grants for Rural Action Now Available

The West of England LEADER Fund is now open for Grant Applications

The new West of England LEADER programme is now open for applications for grants from rural businesses and communities across North Somerset, South Gloucestershire and Bath & North East Somerset.

Eligible businesses and communities can apply for grants for capital projects to help support their growth and sustainability.  Applications for investments from £10,000 up to £100,000 can now be made.

The LEADER programme is primarily designed to promote business growth and stimulate job creation.  The programme is focused on rural areas and its priorities are supporting micro and small rural businesses, farm diversification projects, forestry projects, tourism projects, rural services and cultural and heritage projects.

The Forest of Avon Trust is really pleased to be part of the Local Action Group for Leader. For more information on the grants available, please click here.
