The programme provides specialist support, advice and grant funding to help residents, local business and public sector organisations to work together to develop the best ideas to strengthen the local economy.

If you want to create real economic change in your area – whether this is in food, housing, finance, energy or any other local economic opportunities – then the CED programme will set you on the right path.

Community Economic Development funding and grants

The CED programme is helping 50 communities to develop their own community economic development plans.
