The Governor’s Office works closely with the St Helena, Ascension Island and Tristan da Cunha governments, and with the Department for International Development, to support good governance across the three territories and to discharge the Governor’s constitutional responsibilities.

Supported by two Administrators who represent the Governor in Ascension and Tristan da Cunha, we represent the interests of the UK Government to the territory governments and the territory governments to the UK Government. We oversee Foreign and Commonwealth Office programmes, projects, and areas of interest, including Conflict, Security and Stabilisation Fund projects and Chevening scholarships.
