We’re proud of our Northern roots and are absolutely delighted to announce our partnership with The Northern Powerhouse. The Northern Powerhouse Partnership Programme is a collection of esteemed businesses throughout the north of England and aims to back business growth within the area. We are thrilled to be a part of this group of business leaders showcasing the very best of up North!

What is Northern Powerhouse?

The Northern Powerhouse is the Government’s vision for a super-connected, globally-competitive northern economy with a flourishing private sector, a highly-skilled population, and world-renowned civic and business leadership. The Northern Powerhouse Partner Programme is an essential part of creating the Northern Powerhouse. The government is growing a network of partners who all believe strongly in the economic potential of the North, and support the need for a combined effort by government and business to realise that potential.

‘Building a Northern Powerhouse is about boosting the local economy by investing in skills, innovation, transport and culture, as well as devolving significant powers and budgets to directly elected mayors to ensure decisions in the North are made by the North. We are backing business growth right across the North, and giving our great cities the power and resources they need to reach their huge untapped potential.’ – The Northern Powerhouse
