Cornwall & Isles of Scilly

the natural place to
grow great business...

Welcome to CIOS LEP

The Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership drives activity to support business growth, create jobs and help people realise their potential. We are led by local business people working together with Cornwall Council and the Council of the Isles of Scilly to set the priorities for how our economy should grow. Our role is to oversee how best to invest over £1 billion of public, private and European funds in the local economy by 2020. Our goal is to lay the foundations for 20,000 new jobs and to exceed projected growth by at least 5% in this time.
