TRAC Regional Groups

Regional TRAC groups support the sector with sustainability and TRAC issues, on a 'self-help' basis.

The TRAC Development Group recognises that the regional groups are a key means of support for TRAC practitioners. Members of the TRAC Support Unit regularly attend meetings of the regional groups to share information, provide support and understand common issues.

The TRAC regional groups have been established and are active for the following regions:

London Graham Willard Rotates with host email
Midlands Debbie Man Raj Patel email
North East Catherine Jones Andrew Howard email
North West Catharine Carter ~post vacant~ email
Scotland Elaine Sloan Rotates with host email
South Paul Sloan Rotates with host email
South West Ian Dufty Julia Hastings email
Wales Caitrina Arnold Louise Dunbar email
Group of Five Ewa Szynkowska Rotates with host email

How to join a group 

To find out when your next TRAC regional group meeting is being held or to join a group, either contact the chair of each group directly or ask the TRAC Support Unit.

Good practice guides and case studies

TRAC Regional Groups and individual institutions produce good practice materials for the sector from time to time. These offer practical, tactical support, but do not form part of the TRAC requirements.

TRAC the easier way

This guide offers suggestions for how institutions can improve the efficiency of their TRAC processes. Benefits identified include the smoothing of workloads, reduction in the volume of work required and potentially producing the TRAC returns earlier.
