As a Network we provide a base of policy experts from across government. We specialise in knowing and understanding the regions and aim to ensure that government policies and programmes can be delivered effectively.
We also identify local issues and feedback to influence emerging policy development. Government Offices (GOs) also have a key role in overseeing contingency planning, so Government can respond to large-scale emergencies in an integrated way.
This site contains general information on the work of the GO Network, drawing together national policies, news, and events across the regions. You can access the nine GO regions by using the map to the right, or any of the regional images across the top of the screen. Find out more about us here.
We greatly value your feedback. Please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
What's happening nationally?
Regional ministers are supported by local Government Offices. They bring together key individuals and partners in the region to identify key challenges, and develop partnership approaches to address them. Regional ministers champion their regions locally and nationally.
The Real Help Now websites signposts businesses and individuals facing the effects of the economic downturn to national sources of help, advice and support.
