The UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) is a new three-year fund kicking off this year. It replaces European Structural and Investment funding which the UK continues to participate in until 2023. The West of England has been allocated £13,795,332 over the three years of the programme. £3,608,467 of this money is ringfenced for a numeracy programme called Multiply.
The Government has set national priorities that UKSPF investments must contribute to delivering. The national priorities are: communities and place; local business support; and people and skills.
