LEADER is a rural development programme which aims to improve the quality of life and prosperity in rural communities through locally driven initiatives and projects.

LEADER will be delivered through the Angus Local Action Group (LAG) which has representatives from local communities, businesses and organisations with an interest in rural development.

LAG will oversee a grant fund of approximately £2million and assess and recommend projects for approval based on the delivery of the outcomes of the Local Development Strategy.
