We are proud that Enterprise M3 has been praised by Government for our strong track record on delivery, and accountability through outstanding governance. Our Annual Report, launched at our AGM, identifies many of the LEP’s strengths and points the way forward for how we, and our partners, can help lead a strong economic recovery and renewal for the area.
Key moments in the LEP’s catalogue of achievements last year, include:
- Investment of £37m in jobs, homes, learning and business last year.
- We worked with 83 schools and colleges to inspire and prepare young people for the world of work.
- Support for the region’s low carbon sector, which made sales of over £18billion. With 10% of the entire UK low carbon and environmental goods and services sector now in the EM3 region, we are primed to help lead on the UK’s Green Recovery.
- The creation and safeguarding of over 450 jobs and support for 237 enterprises by the EM3 Growth Hub. Our experienced team of advisors have a 99% satisfaction rating from the business leaders they work with.
