South Tyneside has been provisionally allocated £8.8m of UK Shared Prosperity Funds (UKSPF) by Government over the next three years (2022 / 2023, 2023 / 2024 and 2024 / 2025).

UK Shared Prosperity Funds are the £2.6bn UK-wide successor to European Structural and Investment Funds (such as ERDF and ESF) and will run for 3 years.

UKSPF is closely linked to Government aims around Levelling Up and the recent Levelling Up White Paper.

To access this allocation, South Tyneside Council is working on a Local Investment Plan, which will highlight:

  • our priorities
  • key programmes and projects
  • associated outputs and outcomes

The plan has to be submitted to Government by Monday 1 August 2022.

As part of this role, the Council is asking for projects to come forward that meet our local, and the national UKSPF, aims.
