As part of the overall LEADER scheme, the Cynnal y Cardi Local Action Group launched a new Grant Fund, which aimed to support small scale LEADER activity in Ceredigion.

The fund was designed to help make a difference in rural communities, with the aim of providing small-scale revenue support to:

  • Organisations in their recovery post Covid-19.
  • Support opportunities for pre commercial activities.
  • Pilot innovative activities that provide opportunities for testing the concept of an idea.
  • Supporting activity that strengthens community cohesion.


The Grant Fund focused on the following priorities from the Cynnal y Cardi Local Development Strategy:

  • supporting activity with the aim of strengthening opportunities for developing Ceredigion’s circular economy
  • supporting early intervention for the development of pre-commercial activity with the aim of developing entrepreneurial activity
  • strengthening community resilience activity with a focus on the role of Town and Community Councils in supporting and engaging with their communities
  • developing opportunities for re-engaging people and reinvigorating community activity following COVID-19 and piloting innovative uses for community facilities
