NW Event 28 February: Financing Economic Initiatives and the Shared Prosperity Fund
The Government is committed to creating a ‘Shared Prosperity Fund’ which will be aimed at reducing the inequalities between communities across the UK once the UK has left the European Union and is no longer in receipt of EU Structural Funds. After a brief policy statement in summer 2018 no further formal announcements had been made by the start of January 2019.
At the same time, funding pressure is reducing the mechanisms which agencies can adopt to stimulate local economies and there remains uncertainty about Local Government finance – but there is clarity that those local economies that can achieve growth will benefit financially by retaining funds such as Business Rates and New Homes Bonus.
This event held in conjunction with North West Employers will consider what is required from the Shared Prosperity Fund and how greater economic growth can be stimulated whilst funding uncertainty remains.
The breakfast event will be held at The Base in Warrington between 8am and 10.30am on the 28th February and will be free to attend.
