The North Yorkshire Lieutenancy
Our website will inform and update you about how Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant and the North Yorkshire Lieutenancy can support and represent all residents of the 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.
The Lord-Lieutenant of North Yorkshire, Mrs Johanna Ropner, is Her Majesty The Queen’s representative in the County. She leads the Lieutenancy, which helps foster good relations and co-operation between all kinds of organisation in every part of our wonderful County.
Together with its prime duty to uphold the dignity of the Crown, The Lieutenancy also wishes to promote North Yorkshire, York and Teesside, its people, culture, diversity, heritage and history by serving its communities and encouraging engagement, voluntary service and benevolence across all groups and sectors, in business, industrial and social life.
