CYNNAL Y CARDI LEADER GRANT SCHEME
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
