We have conduced a Business Tracker Survey to help us to uderstand the needs of local businesses, inform policy-making and ensure support is appropriately targeted.

The Covid-19 pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on the Leicester and Leicestershire economy, with many businesses struggling to deal with the effects of restrictions enforced upon businesses and a change in demand for products and services. This survey measures this impact on businesses over a period of 12 months. The purpose of the survey is:

  • To understand and track business sentiment as the fallout from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold
  • To provide the LLEP and partners with information from the business community which will then inform decision-making and recovery planning
  • To aid the creation of evidence-based policy and information that helps to attract funding to Leicester and Leicestershire.

Results from the first fieldwork period are now available here:
