Who are the GFirst Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP)?
Set up by central Government in 2011 to work with local businesses, local voluntary organisations and Local authorities, the role of GFirst LEP (Gloucester First Local Enterprise Partnership) is to drive sustainable economic growth in the county, and by doing so, create jobs and business opportunities.
Run by a voluntary board of senior executives and elected representatives from Business and Local Authorities and a small team of full time staff. Based in the Growth Hub at the University of Gloucestershire.
The LEP also supports a number of business sector groups that provide opportunities for business to “talk to government” directly.
