Businesses helping businesses

We have a Facebook page, where local businesses can find free support on offer to other local businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you’re able to offer any free support to other businesses, tag @rutlandbusiness in a Facebook post with information about the support you're offering, and we will share it.

Your Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP)

LEPs are business led partnerships between local authorities and local private sector businesses. There are 38 across England.

We are linked to Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership.

LEPs play a central role in:

  • deciding local economic priorities
  • activities to drive economic growth and job creation
  • improving infrastructure
  • raising local workforce skills

LEP boards are led by a business chair, with board members who are local leaders of industry (including small or medium sized enterprises), educational institutions and the public sector.
