Accessibility statement

The Marches LEP is keen to ensure its website is accessible to a wide range of users. To achieve this, we have been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, a set of guiding principles which explains how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities and more user friendly for everyone. The WCAG is divided into three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA and Level AAA. The Marches LEP website is mostly conformant with WCAG 2.1 Level AA.

We monitor the website regularly to maintain and improve upon these standards. However, if you have any queries about the accessibility of a particular page please contact the Marches LEP by emailing

Accessibility toolbar

We have included an Accessibility toolbar to our website which allows users to set up their own visual preferences when browsing our pages. The toolbar appears as a small icon on the upper right of every page, enabling users to easily:

  • Increase or Decrease text size
  • View the website in Grayscale
  • Enable High Contrast mode
  • Enable Negative Contrast mode
  • Underline links

We hope this additional feature will provide users of all preferences and abilities with a better browsing experience.

The Marches Local Enterprise Partnership has now ceased trading and transferred all its functions to Shropshire Council working with Telford & Wrekin Council and Herefordshire Council, in line with the UK Government's plans for devolution.

The Marches LEP was established in 2011 and hands over an impressive legacy from its 13-year life. In that time the LEP invested over £196m in projects across the Marches, securing in excess of £100m of match funding and supported more than 66,000 business interactions.

The schemes supported have made tangible differences to local communities, increasing skills, creating jobs and improving the physical appearance of many towns.

We would like to thank all the LEP Board Members who have given their time freely over the life of the LEP, as well as all the staff who worked for the LEP over the years. We also want to thank our delivery partners, local education providers and local, regional and national stakeholders who helped us achieve so much.

The Marches Growth Hub will continue to support businesses and will be managed by Shropshire Council, supported by Telford and Wrekin and Herefordshire Councils. Each of the three Local Authorities will also continue to provide direct business support locally. Details of this support will be available through the Marches Growth Hub website and from the Local Authorities directly. Website: | email:

The Marches Careers Hub will continue to be delivered and will be managed by Shropshire Council, supported by Telford & Wrekin and Herefordshire Councils. Website: | email:
