As individuals and businesses adapt to new ways of working, our group members have shared their experiences and strategies for a new future; from business diversification, flexible working, accessing Growth Hub support, through to re-writing business plans for a prudent future.

As businesses plan for re-growth and look to the future, GFirst LEP’s business groups have been, and continue to be, a key contributor in the development and implementation of the Gloucestershire Economic Recovery Plan.   Their valuable contributions have enabled us to create a business-rich plan which reflects the county’s character, business needs and economic priorities.

Sector feedback also informs national-level working groups such as the High Streets Task Force: supporting communities to transform the high streets.
