About the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership

We work with partners across the public and private sectors with the goal of stimulating growth to unlock the Leeds City Region’s vast economic potential.

We want our region to be recognised globally as a strong, successful economy where everyone can build great businesses, careers and lives. To do this, we unlock the Leeds City Region’s vast economic potential by enabling businesses to grow and develop.

We work with partners across the public and private sectors with the goal of stimulating growth that will create jobs and prosperity for everyone who lives, works and does business here.

We develop strategy and policy aimed at meeting both the current and the future needs of our region's economy. We also deliver projects that support businesses and accelerate growth.

Together with our partner organisation, the West Yorkshire Combined Authority, our work spans the entire Leeds City Region - the 10 districts of Barnsley, Bradford, Calderdale, Craven, Harrogate, Kirklees, Leeds, Selby, Wakefield and York.
