Welcome to the Website for the Orkney Islands LEADER Programme 2007-2013


In late 2007 the Orkney Islands LEADER Action Group (LAG) submitted a bid to the Scottish Government for LEADER funding for the period 2007-2013. 

On the basis of this bid, Orkney was awarded £2.11 million.  The Orkney Islands LAG are now successfully delivering the LEADER programme and we welcome enquiries from interested parties.

Please take some time to view the various pages and information downloads available through our website, which contain more details on the Orkney LEADER fund.

If you wish to discuss LEADER further please contact Alister Brown by calling - 01856 873535 ext. 2855, or e-mailing - alister.brown@orkney.gov.uk 


Now that the Orkney LEADER Programme has had 15 rounds with 75 successful projects, all funding is committed.
