The Resilient Powys Project delivered a programme of support and financial assistance to encourage innovative, bottom up, small scale, business and community-led development initiatives, supporting diversification of the rural economy and improving the quality of life of Powys' citizens. A suite of strategic objectives were identified against which activities will be delivered.
These activities included supporting innovative approaches and pilot studies; sharing best practice, case studies and site visits; facilitating and encouraging capacity building through establishing and supporting networks and mentoring; and developing the economic, environmental and social sustainability of the region. Through the identified activities, Glasu sought to support communities and businesses to become more resilient to the local, national and global economic and environmental challenges that they face, applying the Axis 4 ethos, to support, inform and augment the work being carried out through Axis 3 projects in Powys.
