Coaching - London

This page is for your point of contact with the elected Regional Council system covering Coaching matters. It is set up to allow you to know who is responsible for this subject area (which we call a Portfolio) in London. We intend to increase the content of the page once the system is fully up and running with content like news items relevant to the portfolio either in the region or more widely and details of the matters you seem most concerned with from your feedback. The regional councillor heading up the coaching portfolio in London is profiled below.
