Who We Are

The Sheffield City Region comprises the Mayoral Combined Authority (MCA), the Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and the SCR Executive Team.

Many things that help unlock economic growth, such as transport, skills, infrastructure and business growth support are often best delivered at a wider level than individual councils, but at a more localised level than national government. This is why we work together across a number of local council areas to support economic growth. Private sector leadership is also critical to the success of the local economy and the Sheffield City Region brings together public and private sector leaders to make decisions that drive economic growth and create new jobs.
