Who We Are

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

We work with a number of Local Authorities, businesses, communities and other partners to support economic growth across South Yorkshire and the wider city region (economic growth is an increase in the production of goods and services, compared from one period of time to another).  Factors such as good transport links, access to a workforce with the right skills, infrastructure (such as road and broadband connectivity) help to grow the economy and create new jobs which is why our priorities focus on transport, business growth, housing and infrastructure and, skills and employment.
