The Marches LEP receives funding for the following projects:


Growth Deal Projects

Through Growth Deals, Local Enterprise Partnerships can seek freedoms, flexibilities and influence over resources from Government, and a share of the Local Growth Fund to target their identified growth priorities. This includes putting forward activity led by partners as part of a package bid.

More than £104 million is currently being invested into the region’s economy to create thousands of homes and jobs thanks to the Marches Growth Deal. Find out more.


Marches Growth Hub

Marches Growth Hub

The Marches Growth Hub offers a single point of access to information and guidance on business support available to enterprises across the region, regardless of sector or size of development.

Developed by The Marches LEP, the virtual hub is a business-friendly website, where start-ups, SMEs and large employers can search for products and services and be signposted to advice and support


Marches Investment Fund

Aimed at bringing forward development projects that will create much needed homes and jobs across the Marches region,  The Marches Investment Fund, which has been made possible via an award from the Government’s Growing Places Fund, will provide capital loan funding for stalled projects that will then be able to quickly start and create economic growth. It will also provide loan assistance to projects needing to complete their final stage feasibility studies.
