You will no doubt be aware that we have a growing number of designated National Leaders of Governance (NLGs). Northamptonshire and Derbyshire are both involved in piloting new approaches to growing capacity for supporting improved governance, including developing Local Leaders of Governance (LLGs). If you would like information on the work of these pilots please contact the EMTSSG reps for the areas via mark.lambell@sdsa.net or NLG Advocates, Steve Ward s.ward42@btinternet.com (Leicester City, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire and Rutland) or Ed Wydenbach wydenbach@hotmail.com (Derby City, Derbyshire, Nottingham City, Nottinghamshire)
