Cairngorms Local Action Group

The Cairngorms Local Action Group (LAG) is a group of local people from all walks of life who are representative of different parts of the community including residents, businesses, charities and the Public Sector.  They decide how to invest LEADER funding in the Cairngorms to best deliver the Local Development Strategy (LDS).

Cairngorms LAG members volunteer their time, skills and knowledge to support community led local development through securing and disbursing funding for projects. The Cairngorms LAG was formed through an open recruitment process. A skills matrix was used to ensure the range of skills and experience necessary were engaged to deliver the LDS.

The Cairngorms National Park Authority act at the Accountable Body for the Cairngorms LAG by employing staff to deliver the programme and providing financial processing support.
