The UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) Community & Place Grants have been created to help communities deliver projects that will support local priorities and help communities thrive and grow.
The objectives of the UKSPF Communities & Place Grants are to:
- Strengthen our social fabric and foster a sense of local pride and belonging, through investment in activities that enhance physical, cultural and social ties and access to amenities, such as community infrastructure and local green space, and community-led projects.
- Build resilient, healthy and safe neighbourhoods, through investment in quality places that people want to live, work, play and learn in, through targeted improvements to the built and natural environment and innovative approaches to crime prevention.
Applications for this round of funding are now closed. Details of the next round of funding will be announced in due course.
Our UKSPF Investment Plan has been approved by North Ayrshire Council Cabinet and UK Government. It sets out what the Council will do with its UKSPF allocation.
The UK Shared Prosperity Fund is a central pillar of the UK government’s Levelling Up agenda and provides £2.6 billion of funding for local investment by March 2025. The Fund aims to improve pride in place and increase life chances across the UK investing in communities and place, supporting local business, and people and skills.
