Helping to make our region more prosperous

We want to make Yorkshire & Humber a better place in which to live, work and invest. As the regional development agency, part of what we’re doing is to focus on the concept of ‘place’: how people can be helped to lead fuller and more independent lives, and how we can promote the business agenda across all areas of Yorkshire & Humber.

This section tells you about our policy programmes relating to our region. For more detail, please refer to the Regional Economic Strategy (RES) and Yorkshire Forward’s Corporate Plan
