Strengthen communities through participation

The strength of Essex is its people. We are home to many tight knit communities, with an incredible voluntary sector and community spirit.

Our ambition is to spread that spirit everywhere. To foster the bonds that hold us together, celebrate differences and show the importance of personal participation so that we have safe and cohesive communities. Because communities grow from individual participation and a sense of purpose, not from top down action.

Our priority...Nurturing a safer, better connected society by giving people more ways to control and contribute to their communities.
