The main aim of the conference is to launch the new Lanarkshire LEADER Programme and advise on the priorities and objectives against which applications for funding will be assessed. The Programme has £4million of support available and runs until 2020.

They event will again be showcasing some of the projects that have been supported through the previous LEADER programme. There will also be three interactive workshops on topics. While details are still being finalised these will include:

  • Explaining the LEADER application process - what’s new and how to apply
  • Community Shares and Crowdfunding - are these sustainable funding mechanisms suitable for your organisation?
  • How to prepare great funding applications - what should you consider and have in place before making an application
