Local Investment Fund

Our Local Investment Fund (LIF) offers funding to local projects which aim to make a real difference in people’s lives at a neighbourhood level by addressing local community need.

Decisions on LIF funding are taken by area working groups, made up of councillors from the local area.

Since 2012 we have invested £7.7 million into more than 100 projects across the city through LIF.
