Lancashare - Changing the way our county does business..!                               

Lancashare is part of the GB Shared group of companies.  GB Shared is a network of county-wide sharing platforms which aim to:

* Bring about countywide collaboration, keeping more money and opportunities local 

* Stimulate economies at local level through the creation of empathy economies

* Share and centralise; events, awards, funding, tenders, jobs, businesses, property and much more from across the county

* Record the impact of sharing [local supply chains, carbon footprint, unemployment, social values]

Lancashare is an online resource for Lancashire businesses. Our aim is to offer a single online portal for business owners and managers to find support for their organisation. Whether you are thinking of starting or growing your business, extending or training your workforce, winning awards, finding events or increasing sales, being part of the ‘Lancashare’ online community will make the journey easier for you!

Our share sites are free resources, you don't have to join us to benefit, just using the site helps another local business.  If you do want to join us, membership starts at just £149 a year and comes with incredible benefits!

With thousands of businesses in Lancashire, it makes sense for us to work together to bring prosperity to the county and support to one another. We save you time by bringing you the latest business funding opportunities, details of networking groups and local events all in one place. Our business directory is free to access* and brings you details of Lancashire based companies by sector so you can search for what you need with ease. Furthermore, companies listed in the directory offer you exclusive discounts to ensure you save money on the products and services you need.

We also share public sector tender opportunities, ensuring as many businesses as possible have access to local contracts.  Our members receive tender alerts, which also comes with a bid writing service should you need it. 

In 2019, we shared over £900 m of bid opportunities out to our members.  If you see a tender you like, contact us and we'll be happy to help or signpost you!

In 2020 we launched, The Gen, our national youth platform enabling thousands of businesses across the UK to share opportunities with 16-24 year olds meaning our membership benefits you, your business, your county and the next generation.

Just wanted to drop a quick note to say a massive thanks to Lisa for her help and advice. Brilliant to see somebody so passionate about Lancashire and getting local businesses to deal with local businesses, and the progress she has made with getting councils to follow suit deserves a mention on the Queen's honours list never mind a 5* rating.


We joined Lancashare in Nov 2018, since joining we have found Lisa Edge extremely helpful and always there to help with her knowledge and support. Last week she spent some time with me to show me more about the platform and how to use it to its full potential. She also helped me with here amazing business mind and advised on some other ideas i could place within my business. Her passion and knowledge is fantastic and how she is so enthusiastic in helping others. Its a great platform and easy to upload all of your business needs, news and offers. Being able to connect with local businesses and all work together in a local area, is something that we have always wanted to do as a business. Lisa is a remarkable person and we are honoured to be part of the Lancashare family.


Lancashare is dynamic, just like the founder, the powerhouse that is Lisa Edge. Lancashare is different offering local business’s the opportunity to interact. Lisa adds the personal touch and forms meaningful introductions. These introductions transform into Business. Lisa gets to know you, your business, your team and what you want to achieve. Within six months of joining this incredible team, we were introduced to Blackburn Rovers Football Club. This resulted in us becoming the clubs digital and diversity partner and in conjunction with Alpha Led, supplying their pitch side LED display. We have been members of other B2B organisations, some established for decades and being honest, seen little ROI. Our Lancashare membership was paid for within the first few weeks of joining andit costs so little. If you are about growth, passionate about keeping it in the County and want a real asset helping you achieve this, call Lisa at Lancashare and watch your results soar. Delighted to be dealing with Lancashire business’s – delighted to be a part of Lancashare. Keep up the good work Lisa, lets make Lancashire a better place for all of us.

Lancashare is a wonderful platform for businesses across Lancashire, led by the amazing Lisa Edge, one of the most passionate business leaders in the North West (if not world!). Lancashare is a resource the county could no longer do without, opening up a whole world of business opportunities to our companies. Access to tenders, jobs, business events, funding and training are all just a click away! However, the true value comes from the passion of Lisa to bring together the business world of the county, harnessing the passion of our business leaders to facilitate real change in the way we work. This passionate way of working with a clear focus on Lancashire businesses working together will leave a lasting legacy, helping the county to thrive and benefiting all businesses regardless of sector, size or demographic. Well done Lancashare and keep up the good work!
