The Cotswolds LEADER Programme

The acronym ‘LEADER’ derives from the French words “Liaison Entre Actions de Développement de l’Économique Rurale” which means, ‘Links between the rural economy and development actions’. 

What separates it from other funding programmes is that it is delivered locally rather than nationally, with decisions on how and where the grant money is spent being made by an appointed Local Action Group (LAG) of key representatives from various organisations in the local area.

LEADER is a grant fund which could bring significant benefit to small businesses and communities in the Cotswolds.
