APSE and CLES have designed a toolkit for maximising impact in local economies

14 Sep, 2023

APSE partnered with CLES to undertake this research project in order to:

  • Investigate how local authorities are responding to the opportunities of levelling up funding, through analysis of projects being supported and in consultation with local authorities; and to
  • Develop a new toolkit to support local authorities and other applicants to maximise the socioeconomic impact of levelling up funding – which examines how to maximise the impact of levelling up funding (and which can be transferable to other funds such as the Shared Prosperity Fund, growth deals and peace plus funding arrangements).
  • Maximise the opportunities for local authorities to integrate levelling up projects into their wider objectives for local public service delivery.
