Good Growth logo

The UK Shared Prosperity Fund (SPF) will support the UK Government’s wider commitment to level up all parts of the UK. Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly will use the SPF investment to deliver “Good Growth”. That will move us towards a net zero economy where jobs pay at least the Real Living Wage. Also where nature recovery and strong communities mean everyone can start well, live well and age well.

Cornwall Council will act as ‘Lead Authority’ for Cornwall and Isles of Scilly. After our programme is approved by Government we will be responsible for the £132m programme. This also includes funding for the Multiply, an adult numeracy programme mandated within the SPF.

Further details can be found on the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Good Growth website.
