The government's manifesto committed to create a new UK Shared Prosperity Fund to reduce inequalities between communities across the UK.

The Department for Education is committed to working with other government departments including the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government and the Department for Work and Pensions to achieve this.

The design of the UK Shared Prosperity Fund will be widely consulted on in due course, as announced in the Industrial Strategy white paper. This will include engaging with key stakeholders such as universities, the further education sector and Local Enterprise Partnerships.
