How we work

The North East Combined Authority has seven areas where we focus our programmes of work. These areas are known as the Portfolios and each is led by one of our Cabinet members.

There is strong collaboration across each of the Portfolios. In addition, the themes of environment, digital, public sector reform, and addressing health inequalities, are woven throughout all of our work. Find out more about the Portfolios and the range of work happening at the North East Combined Authority.
