Fife Leader

Enhancing the quality of life in rural fife

The Communities of Fife have benefited from rural development LEADER funding since 2000. The 2014- 2020 programme has £3.4 million to allocate to projects covering the rural areas of North East and South West Fife. The programme supports community projects, rural businesses and farm diversification.

Our key priorities are:

Access – improving access to high quality services, jobs, training opportunities and local amenities

Connectivity – Improving collaboration between businesses and communities, and unlocking tourism potential

Inclusion – Reducing inequalities for residents and empowering communities to deliver more services locally

Almost committed all the funds in Fife – All Rural Enterprise and Farm Diversification budget has been allocated to projects and we can no longer accept any further Expressions of interest from potential projects.
