Worcestershire County Council logo

Worcestershire County Council provides a huge range of services for both residents and businesses in Worcestershire. This includes facilities such as schools and libraries, the provision of care for vulnerable and older residents, road maintenance, and supporting economic and social development across the County.

The County Council works in partnership with a number of local businesses, voluntary organisations and other local authorities such as District and Parish Councils.

A Prosperous Worcestershire is the vision of the new Corporate Plan ‘Worcestershire Fit for the Future’. It sets out the issues in our key areas of focus and what we are setting out to achieve, which involves a change in direction and significant improvement in the case of ‘Open for Business’ and ‘Children and Families’, to lever maximum advantage from ‘The Environment’ and to ensure we make a success of our new responsibility for ‘Health and Well Being’.

Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership logo

The Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership (WLEP), is one of 38 LEPs in England, and is responsible for creating and delivering economic growth and jobs in the County. This is achieved through a partnership approach with business, local government, the third sector and higher and further education working together with a common, shared purpose.
The WLEP is responsible for developing and delivering Worcestershire’s 10-year Strategic Economic Plan which was agreed by all partner organisations and submitted to Government in March 2014. The WLEP is working to:

  • Create 25,000 jobs
  • Increase Gross Value Added (GVA) by £2.9bn
  • Contribute towards the delivery of 21,500 new homes by 2025.

Employment and Skills forms part of the “People” heading in the WLEP’s 5 foundations.

Worcestershire as a region has an ageing population and over half of the student base does not return to the county after completing qualifications and with an increasingly ageing population and a falling working age population, Worcestershire has a challenge to fulfil the labour and skills needs of its local economy.

The WLEP works closely with partners across the county to address these challenges and achieve several aims:

To inspire and inform young people about the variety of career options available within the county.
To enable residents to get back into work in Worcestershire and find suitable employment in the county.
Enable local organisations to create their workforce by improving and increasing their interactions with residents here in Worcestershire.
