Bridgend Reach Rural Development
Welcome to Reach,
Home of the Bridgend Rural Development Plan
The RDP is the Rural Development Plan for Wales 2014-2020. It is a European-funded programme that supports people living and working in rural areas. Through national and local schemes, the RDP provides funding and support for farming communities, businesses, community organisations and local groups in rural areas.
Elevate And Improve Your Community
With Bridgend Reach Rural Development Team
Thriving Rural Communities Scheme
Funding for community hubs, pilot studies, feasibility studies and research in your rural area.
Rural Community Development Fund
A capital grant programme for community-based organisations to tackle poverty and social exclusion in their area.
Support for your Rural Development community projects
If your community has come together behind an idea or improvement, the Rural Bridgend Local Action Group and Reach can help you to take it forward. We commission projects on behalf of community groups to bring in the research, advice and support they need to get going or to test and trial their idea before looking for longer-term sources of funds.
