East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC) have been allocated £10.4 million from the UK Government to help improve local places and support businesses through the Shared Prosperity Fund. They have also been allocated £1.5 million as part of the Government’s Multiply programme supporting adults to improve their numeracy skills. The new Shared Prosperity Fund and Multiply Fund are part of the UK Government’s Levelling Up agenda.
ERYC would like to engage with a wide range of local stakeholders from the private, public, community, and voluntary sectors to get their input on how the funding should be spent. To do this ERYC are holding an introductory webinar focusing on the following priorities:
• Community and Place
• Supporting Local Business
• People and Skills
