The region stretches from the towns, cities and ports of the East coast and both banks of the Humber estuary across the agriculturally rich East Riding, the North Yorkshire moors, the Vale of York and the Dales to the Pennines and the towns and cities and rural areas of West and South Yorkshire where the majority of the population lives.
The Government Office for Yorkshire and The Humber works with organisations
across the Region to deliver Government policies and programmes and to
contribute a regional perspective in their development.
The social, economic and environmental diversity of Yorkshire and The
Humber is important. As the representative of central Government in the
region, we promote effective integration of policies and programmes so that
they reflect priorities at regional and local level.
GOYH is led by its Regional Director Felicity Everiss, supported by 7 senior Directors. Professor Paul Johnstone is the Regional Director for Public Health. Each GO Director leads on a particular policy theme, and most also have responsibility for leading cross Government Office work for particular places.
