Overview

The North East Local Enterprise Partnership (North East LEP) is a public, private and education sector partnership and it works to make the North East a place where more businesses invest, grow and prosper, to deliver more and better jobs for everyone. We are one of thirty-eight LEPs in the country and are responsible for promoting and developing economic growth in the local authority areas of County Durham, Gateshead, Newcastle, North Tyneside, Northumberland, South Tyneside and Sunderland. We produce our area’s Strategic Economic Plan, which acts as a blueprint for the activities that need to take place to improve our economy.

The North East Growth Hub is delivered by the North East Local Enterprise Partnership (North East LEP). The North East Growth Hub is a crucial part of the North East LEP’s Business Growth strategy. Business growth and access to finance are key drivers for more and better jobs.
