Community Feasibility Fund

The Community Feasibility Fund is funded by the UK Government Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) for Communities and Place. We provide support for Bridgend’s communities to undertake local resilience planning, focusing on Health, Climate and Economy. The Community Feasibility Fund continues the success of the Reach programme with the aspiration of developing Bridgend’s communities into thriving places to live, visit and work
