“I’m delighted to have the opportunity to help influence opportunities for Lancashire businesses, which will help them grow and create jobs for local people...The partnership between the councils and the private sector helps ensure challenges are overcome so that businesses can access support faster.”
Tim Webber MBE, Chairman of Growth Lancashire
Growth Lancashire’s mission is to serve both new and existing businesses to grow job opportunities and skills across the County. Growth Lancashire provides business support and economic development services. Our team of business advisors offer impartial advice to help businesses realise their potential either through specialist in-house support or through our extensive network of public and private sector partners.
Growth Lancashire has experience in developing and delivering economic, heritage and regeneration strategies.
Growth Lancashire operates across Lancashire and is owned by a number of local councils. Our Board comprises elected members from local authorities and key local business leaders. We host the County’s Business Growth Hub, Boost; providing the gateway for all enquiries.
Growth Lancashire was previously called Regenerate Pennine Lancashire. We changed our name in 2016 to reflect the footprint that we were already covering, and to support our local authority partners and the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership to deliver increased public and private investment into the area.
By pooling resources and expertise, we can deliver projects across councils to achieve faster results, value for money and greater levels of private sector investment in the area. In the last three years Growth Lancashire has supported thousands of businesses, creating over 4,000 jobs, £12m in direct grant support, and levered in over £50m private investment. We’ve helped to start over a 1,000 new businesses.
