Welcome


LEADER and EMFF are European Union funded Marine and Community Development schemes which focus on delivering bottom-up methods of support for rural development.

The Outer Hebrides programmes ensure that the benefits and participation of the local community is fundamental to the LEADER and EMFF ethos of networking, co-operation, transferring knowledge and integrating activities through enabling the delivery of the objectives of the Local Development Strategy which was developed for and by local communities.

LEADER funding was primarily aimed at supporting small-scale, community-driven projects that were pilot and innovative in nature and which benefit the Outer Hebridean communities.
