North Devon+ is accountable body for two European funding programmes for Torridge and North Devon; the Fisheries Local Action Group (FLAG) aimed at supporting our local fishing communities, marine environment, fishing culture and local seafood and LEADER 5 which has a broad remit to boost our local economy and increase jobs through grant funded projects. We also manage the Exmoor Hill Farming Network, a farmer-led network bringing information, training, demonstrations, grants and opportunities to upland farmers across Exmoor. You can find out more about each of these programmes via the links below.
We keep our ear to the ground when it comes to what support there is available for local projects, so if you have an idea and are looking for funding, why not give us a call on 01237 428 834.
At present we are not accepting any new funding enquiries or applications to the LEADER programme. If we do secure further funding we will reopen the applications on this website page so please check back to see if there are further updates. We are still offering a free business advice programme for eligible applicants please click here for more details:
