Government has committed to creating a UK Shared Prosperity Fund to succeed European structural funds, including the European Regional Development Fund. The UK Shared Prosperity Fund will bind together the whole of the UK, tacking inequality and deprivation across our four nations, including the North East of England.

Final decisions will be taken after a cross-Governmental Spending Review. In the meantime, officials have been working closely with interested parties whilst developing the fund, including a stakeholder event in Gateshead.
