UK Government investment which contributes to levelling up has already provided enormous benefit to Scotland with a total investment of over £2 billion.

This includes the £211m UK Shared Prosperity Fund, the £1.5bn City and Regional Growth Deals, across all parts of Scotland and for the Glasgow City Region, a share of £100m has been awarded for an Innovation Accelerator, one of three in the UK.

This is only the beginning, the levelling up fund and community ownership fund are ongoing and along with the community renewal fund, 68 projects have already received funding worth over £190m in Scotland.

We are focused on boosting pay and jobs, spreading opportunities and restoring a sense of pride in place by empowering local leaders and communities across Scotland.
