Welcome to Greater Renfrewshire and Inverclyde LEADER
What is LEADER?
LEADER—Liaison Entre Actions de Dèveloppement Èconomique Rurale
(Links between Activities Developing Rural Communities)
LEADER is a European Union funded Community Development scheme which focuses on delivering a bottom-up method of support for rural development. Support is primarily aimed at small-scale, community-driven projects that are pilot and innovative in nature. The participation of the local community in the project is fundamental to the LEADER ethos of networking, co-operation, transferring knowledge and integrating activities and actions. The delivery of LEADER is guided by the Local Development Strategy (LDS) for the particular area and managed by a Local Action Group.
