The impact of Yorkshire Forward
- We have helped nearly 30,000 businesses a year to improve performance. That's 1 in 12 of the region's business, with a typical turnover gain for each of around £15,000 a year.
- Around 1 in 30 people in the region's workforce are in a job because of our work in the last five years (60,000 in total). We've been one of the two most successful Regional Development Agencies at turning investment into jobs.
- The extra jobs and business growth due to our interventions adds up to additional tax revenue of around £725 million per year for Government – that's well over twice what has typically been invested in the Agency.
Regional Development Agency Yorkshire Forward is in negotiations to extend the Business Link Yorkshire contract after securing approval from the Department of Business Innovation and Skills to provide continued funding beyond March 2011.
