Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) - ‘More jobs, better jobs’ Partnership

This research looks at anchor institutions in Leeds City Region, examining how the impact of these big spenders can be maximised for the region as a whole.

The report was commissioned as part of the ‘More jobs, better jobs’ partnership between:

  • Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF)
  • Leeds City Council and the Leeds City Region (LCR)

The report was undertaken by Dr David Devins, Professor Jeff Gold and Paul Willis from Leeds Business School and Professor Robert Garvey and Dr George Boak from York St John University.

It presents findings from a review of practice internationally and action research in the LCR, conducted between September 2014 and July 2016, which can be applied to other regions.
