Funding

As part of the Gender Pay Gap Action Plan, up to £5m will support up to 2,000 women return to work in sectors - including agriculture where they are under-represented - by bringing their skills up to date and providing access to work experience placements.

In addition, three pilot training programmes developed by the Women in Agriculture Taskforce, specifically aimed at women living or working in Scottish agriculture, have been launched by Equalities Minister Christina McKelvie ahead of the Royal Highland Show.

Ms McKelvie said:

Fergus Ewing MSP offered his services locally last week as he opened an event vying for the continuation of EU funds.  The Tyne Esk LEADER Past, Present and Future event showcased the work done by the fund across rural Midlothian and East Lothian, and called for elected officials to endorse it in post-Brexit discussions.

Stirling High was a hive of activity on Thursday (6 June) as the local food community gathered for the launch of Alive with Local Food: a joint initiative, by Stirling Council and Forth Valley and Lomond Leader, to support and develop the local food sector. The Scottish Rural Network were also there, camera's at the ready - so stay tuned for our upcoming film from the event!

More than 100 miles of new and improved paths will be created across Scotland as part of a scheme to boost outdoor access.
