Wakefield’s PEAT Project is a CLLD Programme that is part financed by the European Structural and Investment Fund, and will run until 2022 in the areas of Airedale, Castleford, Ferrybridge, Havercroft & Ryhill, Kinsley & Fitzwilliam, South Elmsall & South Kirkby and Hemsworth.

It gives a voice to those living and working in these areas, letting them shape the interventions that will support local people and businesses to grow and access opportunities.

Nova is delivering the Objective 4 strand which is designed to: Develop Third Sector Capacity (building on local community assets and resources through programme of activity to support the third sector to become more enterprising and sustainable)

There is a total budget of £291,000 which includes a £200,000 Capital grant scheme.

Julie Baker, Nova Adviser - Community and Enterprise Development, will be providing assistance to qualifying voluntary sector organisations in the designated geographical areas for 3 days each week.
