The UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) is one strand of a suite of funding which succeeded the old EU structural funds. This money has three priorities: communities and place, support for local businesses, and people and skills. Alongside a full research report, the Network has produced a summary document and two case studies from Clackmannanshire and Midlothian. There is also an information release summarising key messages and background to the research. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any further detail.
Lead local authorities were tasked with working with a diverse range of local and regional stakeholders to achieve Fund outcomes in their areas. This included the voluntary sector and Third Sector Interfaces (TSIs).
In September 2023, the TSI Scotland Network undertook research with Chief Officers of TSIs to establish how involved the local third sector had been in the development of UKSPF, and to identify learning for both the third sector and the UK Government. Alongside a full research report, the Network has produced a summary document and two case studies from Clackmannanshire and Midlothian.
