Welcome to the Website for the Orkney Islands

LEADER Programme 2014-2020

The Orkney Islands LEADER Programme will offer funding for small scale, pilot projects led by the local community, or that are in the local communities interest, with the aim to promote economic and community development within Orkney.

Within this website you will find information on the Orkney LEADER Programme, the Local Action Group, priorities for funding and more. As national guidance and eligibility criteria for the Programme are yet to be received, further information will be added to the website in the coming months, with the information within these pages subject to change.

Although the Orkney Islands LEADER programme is not yet open for applications, we would welcome early discussions regarding potential project ideas.
