Leeds City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP)
 
The LEP’s COVID-19 page provides an overview of a wide range of support that it can direct towards businesses. A couple of services that we think might be of particular interest to our members include:

Free one-to-one business coaching sessions

The LEP is working with business professionals to co-ordinate free coaching sessions to help SMEs formulate and implement contingency plans for this period and beyond. Coaches will work with companies to diagnose issues affecting them at the moment including people, suppliers and customers, finance and premises. Email us to access this support.

Peer-to-peer support programme

In partnership with Biskit, the LEP is delivering a series of peer-to-peer webinars for businesses across the Leeds City Region. This is an opportunity for business owners to share how they are adapting to the current situation and to learn from others. Find out more and sign up.    The LEP’s business advice page is available: https://www.the-lep.com/business-support/covid-19-support-for-businesses/
