The West Wales and the Valleys region, which covers 15 local authority areas, has been awarded the highest level of support from the European Union for the Structural Funds programming round 2014–2020.

The West Wales and the Valleys programmes comprise funding from two separate European Structural Funds: the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the European Social Fund (ESF).

ERDF funds will help progress the region’s transformation into a sustainable and competitive economy by investing in research and innovation and helping new and existing businesses to grow. It will also focus on renewable energy, energy efficiency and strategic infrastructure. The ESF will be used to tackle economic inactivity, and increase skills and employment

Full details and the state of play regarding this important source of funding for West Wales can be found at the WEFO website and Pembrokeshire County Council European Unit.
