Regional Senior Responsible Officers on Sustainable Development 

To help deliver the sustainable development programme, there are now Senior Responsible Officers for sustainable development in every regional executive team. They are in the process of developing plans to lead the delivery of sustainable development across the region.

The SROs work with leadership across the region to set targets, plans and programmes of work to delivery the sustainable development commitments in the Long Term Plan within their region. They receive support and guidance from the national team, and report regularly on progress. Many of them work closely with their local networks. We will publicise events that they run over the year, but if you'd like to find out more, your local SROs are:
