The Government is committed to levelling up every part of the UK, including the North East, and devolving power to people and places

Now we have left the European Union, we will create the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF), the domestic successor to EU structural funds including the European Regional Development Fund.

The UKSPF will bind together the whole of the United Kingdom, tackling inequality and deprivation in each of our four nations, cutting out bureaucracy and creating a fund which invests in UK priorities and is easier for local areas to access.
