In England we are putting BT at the heart of local communities

We work locally in each of the geographical areas across England to better understand and respond to the needs of local people and business.

We work to develop solid strategic relationships with the local authorities, the Local Enterprise Partnerships, key stakeholders, business and community organisations to focus on the success and growth of local economies.

Each geographical area has a BT Group lead who is supported in their role by a regional board. The regional boards are made up of representatives of each main organisational part of BT, to make for a strong team of cross company expertise and capability.
