There are many ways in which businesses can get involved with the LEP. Sector and cross cutting groups cover the wide range of businesses that operate in the West of England, each holding their own meetings and reporting to the LEP Board. See how these work together in the LEP structure chart.
Membership of all of these groups is voluntary. Most groups meet two or three times a year for a couple of hours – in a number of cases the groups have created sub-groups around specific tasks or topics. We would be very interested to hear from individual companies (particularly small and medium-sized businesses) prepared to commit to working as part of these groups – please contact us for more information.
