The Governor also takes a close interest in good governance issues. Responsibility for the Public Service has been devolved to the Deputy Governor who is a locally appointed Anguillian. The Governor’s Office staff support the Governor in the discharge of their responsibilities and enabling them to carry out a programme of public functions.

As well, the Governor’s Office staff work closely with their Government of Anguilla counterparts on a wide range of issues. Making good use of the Overseas Territories Programme Fund and the Jubilee Fund is also a priority for the Governor’s Office in Anguilla.
