Invest in Renfrewshire

Invest in Renfrewshire > Invest in Renfrewshire

Invest in Renfrewshire is an economic development partnership between local employers in the area and Renfrewshire Council. The programme was developed to grow the local economy and reduce unemployment in Renfrewshire.

A strong local economy benefits everyone. When unemployment is low, it means that the local economy is in good shape, firms are busy and there is demand for labour. People in employment earn more, have more disposable income, and spend locally – giving the economy a further boost. The overall economy benefits from increased tax receipts, both from firms and workers, and lower spending on welfare.

You can help, and be part of, Invest in Renfrewshire. Businesses, employers and those self employed can all do their bit. Click on the link below to find out how you can get involved.
