LEADER Rural Development Programme 2014 – 2020

LEADER uses a ‘bottom-up’ or community-led local development approach to rural development. The programme aims to bring about positive change in rural areas through funding, training and animation for communities, enterprise and individuals and support rural development projects to:

  • Revitalise rural areas
  • Promote social inclusion
  • Encourage enterprise and job creation.

Individuals, businesses, social enterprises and community groups are eligible to apply for LEADER funding. Specifically, the Rural Development Programme is split into thematic areas identified as most in need of support and with the greatest potential to promote sustainable development for rural communities.


LEADER Themes

Economic, Enterprise Development and Job Creation:

  • Rural Tourism
  • Enterprise Development
  • Rural Towns
  • Broadband

Social Inclusion:

  • Basic Services targets at Hard to Reach Communities
  • Rural Youth

Rural Environment:

  • Protection and Sustainable use of Water Resources
  • Protection and Improvement of Local Biodiversity
