About Lancashire Forum Creative

At UCLan the Lancashire Forum Creative is designed specifically to meet the learning and development needs of creative and digital SMEs.

The Lancashire Forum Creative is a fully-funded ERDF-funded programme (meaning there is no cost to participants) so all companies involved must be:

  • Based in Lancashire
  • Employ Fewer than 250 full-time employees
  • Have an annual turnover less than £40 million
  • Have received less than £160,000 of publicly funded support in the last 3 years
  • Be a business to business company


Every company has different aims, objectives, needs and goals. Our highly experienced facilitators can work with you to decide which Lancashire Forum Creative route is best for you and your business, be it joining an Action Learning Set with other SME leaders, attending innovative and expert-led workshops, or joining a cutting-edge business development programme.

All aspects of the Lancashire Forum Creative are underpinned by peer-to-peer learning that means you work with others ‘in the same boat’ to help you learn and collaborate with other SME leaders who understand the world in which you operate. As the programme is specifically designed for the creative and digital sector so you will have the chance to shape the programme yourself.

Centre for SME at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) 
The Centre for SME at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) is delighted to be able to offer Lancashire-based creative and digital SMEs the opportunity to join an innovative leadership and business growth programme called the Lancashire Forum Creative.
