LEADER is a European funding programme which supports rural community and business projects. In Scotland it is delivered as part of the Scottish Rural Development Programme (SRDP) in partnership with Local Action Groups (LAGs).

The Scottish Borders LEADER programme 2014-20 is now closed to new applicants due to shortage of funds and no new funds are anticipated.

More information on the LEADER programme in the area can be found on the Scottish Borders LEADER website.
