The S&D Group secretariat (central administration) is based in the European Parliament in the heart of Brussels. Our 300 staff of multicultural backgrounds, not only from all the 28 member states but also much further afield, are committed to providing dedicated support for the work of its' members and for the overall functioning of the S&D Group.
The secretariat has three key roles:
to offer political advice, information and research to support political decision-making
to assist in policy development and negotiation
to provide logistical support and technical assistance for Group activities
