The Chamber believes that the Growth Hubs in Gloucestershire provide invaluable support to local businesses and now an independent evaluation of LEP Growth Hubs between 2015 and 2020, commissioned by the government, concludes that LEP Growth Hubs increase turnover, business R&D, access to finance, and job creation.
Among the conclusions are that LEP Growth Hubs are successful, and proven to work, especially for SMEs and have “a strong reputation for reliability and independence among stakeholders, partners, and businesses.
They have a unique understanding of local needs and strengths. This local strength and insight reaches local businesses where national programmes may not.
