UK Shared Prosperity Fund
The UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) is a central pillar of the UK government’s ambitious Levelling Up agenda. We have been awarded £1m to support four key intervention areas:
Intervention E1: Funding for improvements to town centres and high streets, including better accessibility for disabled people, including capital spend and running costs
Intervention E6: Support for local arts, cultural, heritage and creative activities
Intervention E10: Funding for local sports facilities, tournaments, teams and leagues to bring people together
Intervention E23: Strengthening local entrepreneurial ecosystems and supporting businesses at all stages of their development to start, sustain, grow and innovate, including through local networks
Funding from government is split between capital and revenue with 5% available in 2022/23, 10% in 2023/24 and 85% in 2024/25. Funding is provided on an annual basis by government.
The UKSPF funding period ends March 2025.
