The study presents early evidence on the effective implementation and delivery of 4 examples of localised policy interventions that support and/or complement national provision.
The case study examples relating to business support are:
- Greater Manchester Business Growth Hub
- Plymouth Growth Acceleration and Investment Network
- New Anglia Business Information Portal
- West of England Employability Charter Mark
The research aims to understand the rationale for local differentiation of the policy, how the policies were designed and implemented, the enablers for achieving intended outcomes, the barriers faced and to identify lessons learnt.
The report includes the main findings and synthesis of the research, outlining the implications for future localised policy interventions.
