Overall, providing grants for businesses is a relatively small proportion of our work. Around £2m of LEP funds are managed on our behalf and are available as business grants through the Lets Grow programme.
The main proportion of our work is helping businesses through our government funded How’s Business Growth Hub. It connects business people to the help and support that is right for them: ranging from a local networking session, to useful advice in the form of downloadable eBooks, to expert advisers on a wide range of subjects who can be contacted personally.
The biggest impact the LEP has on businesses however is through our behind the scenes work to enable other organisations to connect directly with businesses. This includes both funded and non-funded activity.
