UK Shared Prosperity Fund

The primary goal of the UKSPF is to build pride in place and increase life chances across the UK.

The UK government Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) has launched the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF). The UKSPF is part of the national Levelling Up agenda and is based on three investment priorities which are Communities and place, Supporting local business and People and skills.

The following allocation of funding was made to High Peak Borough Council in January 2023:

  • Communities and place - £1,046,400
  • Supporting local business - £1,019,500
  • People and skills - £249,600

The funds will be allocated within High Peak in three main ways:

1. Procurement which must comply with the Council's procurement regulations. Open procurements can be found on current tender opportunities page.

2. Direct spend by High Peak Borough Council

3. Award of grants through a competitive grant process
