The Fund is a key part of the Government’s ‘Levelling Up’ agenda, providing money for local councils to invest in three priority areas: local communities and places; support for local businesses; and people and skills.

The council is launching a consultation to hear directly from local people about what they feel will work best locally.

Local people can get involved by completing the online survey at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/UKSPF; by visiting the UK Shared Prosperity Fund stand at Boston market on June 25 and 29; or by joining the discussion on the borough council’s Facebook page.
