Lanarkshire Leader Rural Communities Conference: Communities Connected
Lanarkshire Rural Communities Conference
We would like to invite you to register for the Lanarkshire LEADER Annual Conference (supported by South Lanarkshire Council) on Thursday 1st September. This event is a development of the former South Lanarkshire Rural Partnership annual conference and has been extended to reflect the new LEADER Programme area which now includes part of North Lanarkshire. You are invited to join us anytime after 5.00pm for soup and sandwiches and visit our market place, showcasing local groups and organisations. The conference presentations will start at 6.00pm
The main aim of the conference is to launch the new Lanarkshire LEADER Programme and advise on the priorities and objectives against which applications for funding will be assessed. The Programme has £4million of support available and runs until 2020.
We will again be showcasing some of the projects we have supported through the previous LEADER programme. We will also be running 3 interactive workshops on topics that you have already told us are important. Whilst details are still being finalised these will include:
- Explaining the LEADER application process…what’s new and how to apply.
- Community Shares and Crowdfunding …are these sustainable funding mechanisms suitable for your organisation?
- How to prepare great funding applications ….What should you consider and have in place before making an application.
Further details will follow in due course.
Please advise us of your attendance no later than Friday 19th August 2014. Should you have any difficulty registering for this conference please do not hesitate to contact:
