Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership is a membership organisation focused on strategic economic development and business growth. By bringing together local entrepreneurs and politicians we have been able to harness the skills and experience of a wide range of people who understand what it takes to establish businesses and make them successful and therefore sustainable.

The LEP aims to assist existing businesses to grow and to increase their productivity, especially small/medium enterprises and professional firms. We will do this by:

  • Encouraging and assisting them to invest, train staff, diversify, expand, consolidate;
  • Introducing them to complementary businesses, supply chains and services, including professional and financial services; and
  • Assisting them in global markets.

We support the Key Growth Sectors of Knowledge Economy, Visitor Economy, Low Carbon and SuperPort through activities including Business Support, Inward Investment, Lobbying & Communications, Skills, Funding and Major Projects.
