LEADER is part of the current Scotland Rural Development Programme (SRDP). It is a bottom-up method of supporting rural development through implementing Local Development Strategies.
The aim of LEADER is to enhance the capacity of local rural community and business networks to build knowledge and skills and to encourage innovation and co-operation to achieve local development objectives. LEADER will deliver support of around £52m to rural areas across Scotland.
In Fife the key priorities are:
· Improving access to high quality services, jobs, training opportunities and local amenities
· Improving collaborative activities between both businesses and communities
