Cornwall and Isles of Scilly have been allocated £132million for local investment through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund. The Shared Prosperity Fund supports the UK Government’s wider commitment to level up all parts of the UK.
Find out about the UK Shared Prosperity FundWe'll be using this funding to achieve Good Growth for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly by providing opportunities for communities and businesses, as well as access to new jobs and training. Grants are available to support projects that can make our economy more equal, more resilient and more prosperous.
- Community and Place: Urban or rural. Towns, villages or islands. Our communities and places matter. To us, Good Growth means moving towards a net zero economy where jobs pay at least the Real Living Wage and strong communities allow everyone to start well, live well and age well.
- Support for Local Business: Low productivity is a challenge for businesses in Cornwall and Isles of Scilly. Our Good Growth model will improve local opportunities by investing in infrastructure, industry and training.
- People and Skills: We want to give everyone the opportunity to access quality jobs. To do this we need to increase skill levels in our local workforce. Not only will this improve productivity and grow the economy, it will also give people the career and salary progression opportunities they should be able to access.
Visit the Good Growth website for information on the current funding opportunities available. You will also find details of application support and upcoming deadlines.
