The Surrey Hills Board also supports the work of the LEADER Fund. LEADER offers a source of funding for Rural businesses such as farmers and growers, retailers, tourism, rural enterprises, foresters, producers and community groups to develop projects which improve the financial and environmental performance of rural communities and businesses without damaging the countryside.

The scheme has supported a wide variety of projects Click here to view some of them.

The next round of LEADER funding will commence in January 2015. If you have a project you would like to discuss you can contact the LEADER team by clicking here.
