Welcome to the North Warwickshire – Hinckley and Bosworth (NWHB) LEADER Programme.
North Warwickshire and Hinckley and Bosworth Local Action Group have been awarded £1.416m to deliver the LEADER Programme 2015-2019. Under LEADER LAGs can allocate money to local businesses, groups or organisations to help them carry out projects which create jobs, help businesses to grow and which benefit the rural economy.
The area brings together the two local authority areas of North Warwickshire and Hinckley and Bosworth, the two counties of Warwickshire and Leicestershire, two Local Enterprise Partnership areas, the two regions of the East and West Midlands, and is at the centre of England’s Rural Heart. The rural terrain runs from the northern border with Coventry right up to The National Forest in the East, and covers some sparsely populated settlements but also includes the market towns of Coleshill, Atherstone, Polesworth and Earl Shilton.
This rural partnership is an innovative approach which reflects the natural synergies of this functional rural area where the East and West Midlands meet.
