Working together for the North

The NP11 is the business-led voice for the North that brings together the 11 Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) from across the North of England.

Launched in July 2018, we play a leading role in realising the vision for an economically thriving Northern Powerhouse that drives economic prosperity, international competitiveness, and inclusive growth for the benefit of everyone across our great towns, cities and rural communities.

We do this by working in partnership across the public and private sectors, with local and national government and with partners throughout the North – connecting up the North so that it is greater than the sum of its parts. By focusing on the North’s priorities, we aim to have a positive impact on people’s lives and unlock the North’s full potential. We work and advise the government on issues such as how to increase productivity, overcome regional disparities in economic growth and tackle the historic north-south divide.

An ever-strengthening commitment to partnership working with the North’s business and civic leaders has helped attract and accelerate investment from Government, businesses and international investors in recent years.

With major investments in infrastructure, commercial opportunities and innovative technologies continuing to emerge at scale and at pace, the North has the opportunity to be the solution to the UK’s future prosperity.

Our invitation to you, and people across the North is to make your voice heard and play a part in the creation of a prosperous and successful Northern Powerhouse.
