Funded through the Rural Development Plan for Wales (RDP) as part of the Welsh Government and European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development, Arwain is working with Powys County Council to deliver the LEADER 2014 - 2020 programme in Powys.
LEADER uses local knowledge to promote a joined-up “Grass Roots” community-led delivery for rural development.
Following the successful completion of the LEADER Programme 2007 – 2013, we are now working on arwain, the new LEADER Programme in Powys 2014-2020.
The One Powys Local Action Group has been formed and submitted a Local Development Strategy to Welsh Government in September 2014. It has been successful in securing £3,750,000 for projects which will create vibrant, empowered and connected local communities, delivering sustainable and innovative solutions to current and future economic, social and environmental issues, to enhance the economic wealth of the County.
