EPB Communities Network

Posted on: February 21, 2022

We’d like to thank you for your contribution to the discussions we held last year as part of the Communities Mission Network. We gained some hugely valuable insight from the sessions that considered how as a system we could  improve and develop the cooperation and collaboration between statutory agencies and the voluntary sector’.


To further sense check our work we held a Communities Reference Group session in November, drawing together many of the Essex infrastructure organisation, with support from The National Lottery and Essex Community Foundation. This discussion allowed us to play back our collective thinking and to further fine tune the key prioritises.


Attached is a document that highlights the revised priorities that we are hoping to present at the Essex Partnership meeting in March, in order to take them forward and establish potential working groups, there are also listed here:

  • Coherent VCS Infrastructure for Essex
  • Whole system approach to volunteering
  • Local panels
  • Strength through collaboration

We will be circulating further details as to what each priority means, its ambition, insights and the key deliverables in March.
