Can I get advice about how to apply for project funding? If so, how?

Yes- the programme team consists of a Programme Manager and a part time  Animator. The Programme Manager is responsible for the overall delivery of the programme and will often be the first point of contact with the programme. The Animator will be responsible for working directly with applicants to develop their ideas and deliver them under the programme and will be the person most involved in working with prospective applicants on a day to day basis The LEADER programme team will signpost and cross-refer applicants if they see a more appropriate funding route for a particular idea.
