Applying to LEADER is a two-stage process.  The first stage is an 'Expression of Interest'.  You must complete this stage before moving to full application.

To complete and submit an Expression of Interest form (EoI) visit the Scottish Rural Network website - see here for further details.


Once your EoI has been approved, you will be able to begin the full application process.  This is normally completed through the LARCS system (Scottish Government's online management grant system), however at this time, this new system is not available on-line. Please contact us directly on 01479 870543 to request a paper copy of the application form.
