UK-wide funds allocated to support Scots communities

ALL Scotland’s local authorities have had funding applications – to support communities – approved by the UK Government.

In total, £212m is being allocated – covering the financial years 2022-23, 2023-24 and 2024-25 – from a fund called the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, set up – as described here – to make good the loss of so-called EU structural funds, following Brexit.

Says an UK Government announcement, here: “Communities across Scotland will benefit from £212 million of investment in skills, improved high streets, support for local business and more green spaces as the UK takes back control and approves spending plans for funding previously run by the European Union.”

The corresponding figures for England, Wales and Northern Ireland are £1.58bn, £585m and £127m, respectively.

The totals below include funding for a specific adult numeracy scheme, called Multiply.
