About PEAT

PEAT gives a voice to those living and working in the CLLD areas, letting them shape interventions that will support local people and businesses to grow and access opportunities. 

Delivery of the CLLD Programme is overseen by the Local Action Group, a collective of residents and public, private, voluntary or community sector representatives from across the project areas.  

The Local Action Group was formed to develop and implement a Local Development Strategy for Wakefield’s CLLD programme, the PEAT Project, and their role is to design funding calls, forge links with local communities, and bring forward and fund projects that are a fit with the Local Development Strategy.

What We Do

A Local Development Strategy

The People Enabling Area Transformation (PEAT) Project is a Community Led Local Development (CLLD) Programme.

CLLD programmes are driven by local needs, helping support people in overcoming barriers to work and mobilising resources at a local level in a bid to overcome barriers to growth and employment.

The main result is getting more participants into sustainable employment or self-employment, education, training or actively engaged in job search.

Our Local Action Group has designed a Local Development Strategy which builds on the social, environmental and economic strengths of our communities.

The LDS is the guiding document that shapes the way the project is delivered, and has been developed with the input of those individuals the project aims to support - the comnmunity.

Funding is available to support projects that will meet the needs of the CLLD communities, in-line with the PEAT Project's Objectives.
