• Business Groups

Our Business Groups are the ‘engine-room’ – its members drive the decisions and projects to create jobs, and make sure that we spend funding on the areas that need it most.

As individuals and businesses adapt to new ways of working, by holding virtual business group meetings, our 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 move into the recovery and regrowth phase of the pandemic, 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.

If you are not part of our business groups, and you would like to feedback on how COVID-19 coronavirus has impacted on your business, and your plans for recovery, please drop an email to our Business Group Manager elizabeth.weaver@gfirstlep.com
