County Councillor Michael Green, cabinet member for economic development, environment and planning, Lancashire County Council, and Andrew Leeming, Boost programme manager, with businesses benefitting from Boost support


Are you growing a business in Lancashire or thinking of moving to the county? Boost, Lancashire’s business growth hub, could be the key to unlocking your company’s true potential.


Over the last six years, Boost has helped around 6,000 businesses across Lancashire, including some of the county’s most ambitious companies, to achieve their goals to grow and be more profitable through funded growth support.


These include companies in manufacturing, digital, construction and logistics. They have received support in areas including mentoring, scaling up, innovation, international trade, leadership development and accessing finance.


Andrew Leeming, programme manager for Boost, said: “Boost’s objective is simple: we want to help businesses in Lancashire grow.


“Our feedback shows businesses who have engaged with us are overwhelmingly happy with the support they received, and over the past year we have brought in new funded support programmes for every kind of business, wherever you are on your growth journey."


"If you are thinking of moving to Lancashire, or relocating within the county or simply want to grow your business, pick up the phone to us and learn more about how we can help you.”


Boost is led by the Lancashire LEP (Local Enterprise Partnership) and Lancashire County Council and supported by funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

The latest phase of Boost was launched in January last year with £3.65m ERDF funding and included a new support programme, Boost Bespoke. Bespoke helps established businesses who have been trading more than three years and have at least 10 staff to grow rapidly by accessing new markets, boosting their productivity and building a more effective team. This is done by working with each business to develop a tailored programme including growth workshops, peer-to-peer networks, one-to-one coaching and online help to meet the company’s unique needs.


Sue Denver, programme manager for Boost Bespoke said: “Since the launch of the bespoke programme, we’ve helped some of Lancashire’s most ambitious and innovative businesses to grow, become more profitable and find new customers.


“Many business who are looking at new premises do this during a period of rapid growth. Let Boost help you to capitalise on this exciting time and ensure this growth happens in a sustainable way so you can reap the benefits for the long term.”


In addition to the range of support programmes on offer, Boost’s relationship managers can advise and guide you to the right support for your business.


Starting with just a phone call, Boost advisors will arrange an appointment to learn more about a business’s needs and will then create a fully-funded support plan.
