The Enterprise M3 Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) is a public/private partnership set up to support and sustain economic growth at a local level.
The LEP operates with a network of existing business support, provided by the private sector, the public sector and a range of membership and third sector bodies.
The LEP works in partnership with these bodies, avoiding duplication of services. They also work within a network of existing public sector funding and decision making units on areas such as economic development, planning, and infrastructure delivery.
It also cooperates closely with the network of adjacent Local Enterprise Partnerships on issues of shared interest.
Enterprise M3 works as a catalyst within these networks to achieve its vision in four complementary ways:
Coordinating - bringing partners together to create improved outcomes, through the implementation group and their network of action groups.
Informing - communicating what is available from partners through the website and social media, events and networks.
Advocacy - commissioning evidence and lobbying for action from partners or government.
Delivering - carry out activities where this is the best solution.
