Yorkshire Forward was set up by Government to promote sustainable economic development throughout the Yorkshire and Humber region. One of England’s nine Regional Development Agencies (RDAs) we are a business led organisation that aims to help improve the region’s relative economic performance and reduce social and economic disparities.
A regional approach to economic development allows local businesses and communities to formulate solutions that are appropriate for the particular circumstances and strengths of this region.
Yorkshire Forward supports the expansion and development of business in our region by encouraging public and private investment, and by connecting people to economic opportunity. We also work to improve levels of education, learning and skills, and do all that we can to enhance the region’s environment and infrastructure.
Our aim is to maintain and develop this success, making Yorkshire and Humber a truly world-class region in which to live, work and invest.
