The Anchor Network


To support delivery of anchor programmes across Essex, we have brought together a network of officers from across the system to take this work forward.

The Network will provide a platform for members to work collaboratively on shared strategic priorities and support each other to unlock their full Anchor potential.

Information, best practises and learning experiences will be disseminated into the wider system to facilitate and promote engagement across Essex, therefore extending the impact and outreach of each Anchor’s work across different geographical areas and organisation sectors.

The network will:

  • Connect anchors, pledges, and local initiatives
  • Directly deliver key anchor partnership initiatives and provide support to local anchor projects
  • Monitor delivery utilising the system scorecard
  • Develop communications and engagement material to support learning from anchor practice across Essex and the rest of the UK

Working Groups

A number of Working Groups have been established under the Essex Anchor Network (EAN) to allow partners to work collaboratively to drive forward action in areas of priority which have been proposed by the Network. Anchors can nominate themselves forward to support Groups which are of interest to their organisation.
