Helping You

This part of the website is designed to tell you how Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant and the North Yorkshire Lieutenancy can support and champion the individuals, voluntary organisations and businesses that make North Yorkshire such a great county.

In particular, we invite you to discover how the Lieutenancy can help you, acting as a conduit to the Royal Family, the National Honours and Awards systems, giving recognition to voluntary service, faith groups, charitable and business organisations.
