The North Aberdeenshire Local Action Group (NALAG) is responsible for the management and delivery of the rural/LEADER elements of the North Aberdeenshire Local Development Strategy.
Approximately £3.3m has been allocated to the NALAG from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and Scottish Government. These funds have been allocated to support a bottom-up, community-led approach to delivering the North Aberdeenshire Local Development Strategy.
The North Aberdeenshire Local Action Group is a partnership of community, private and public sector organisations, supported by a dedicated Secretariat.
Our vision is to help create a long-term legacy of vibrant, healthy, and inclusive rural and fisheries communities enabled to contribute fully to the social and economic fabric of North Aberdeenshire.
