2020-21 IMPACT REPORT

Throughout this time the OxLEP Business and Skills team’s have been putting businesses need’s first and providing much needed support. This report provides a snapshot of that support, the businesses engaged and the impact the support had had on them.

There are over 43,000 businesses registered in Oxfordshire, at least 99% of which are SMEs. Despite the challenging context, at least 644 of these SMEs have grown by 10% or more in the last year, and 6,194 new businesses have been registered since January 2020.

Oxfordshire has a well-balanced, resilient economy and is one of the strongest engines for growth in the UK.  However, a wide range of Oxfordshire businesses still require support, Brexit, EU Transition and the COVID-19 restrictions have hit many businesses hard over the last year.

This report showcases some of the stories which describe the impact of the OxLEP Business and OxLEP Skills team’s support for Oxfordshire businesses through the COVID-19 pandemic.
