What is Levelling Up?

Levelling Up means creating opportunities for everyone across the UK by:

  • improving jobs, pay and living standards
  • making streets safer
  • protecting health and wellbeing
  • investing in high streets and town centres
  • improving local transport

Opportunities wherever you are

Talent is spread across the whole of the UK, but opportunity is not.  We’re changing that.

There’s no one size fits all, Levelling Up means different things in different areas.  We’ve supported 216 projects across the UK with funding so far and will be allocating £4.8 billion in total.

Funding helps community groups protect important local landmarks like pubs, sports clubs and community hubs.
