Since June 2018 we have held external stakeholder engagement events with representatives from a breadth of sectors. We have spoken to businesses, public bodies, higher education institutions, the voluntary and charity sector and rural partnership groups. These were official level meetings that included organisations who benefit from structural funds. These events invited views on the design and priorities of the fund to aid policy development. We will consult widely on the UK Shared Prosperity Fund which will give all interested parties the chance to contribute their views to Government.

To date we have held 25 engagement events in the UK which are listed below:
