The purpose of The Essex Alliance is to raise the voice of the community sector and through this the voice of the people of Essex who we support – to facilitate a stronger and more coordinated representation of our unified voice with our stakeholders.
The primary aims and aspirations of The Essex Alliance are:
All Community Sector organisations in Essex are welcome to join including charities, community interest companies, not for profit organisations and social enterprises. Evidence of not for profit status may be requested.
All members will inform their Board of Trustees’ (or equivalent) of their membership of The Essex Alliance. This will demonstrate that The Essex Alliance has full organisational support from its members, thus strengthening its collective and unified voice. All will work to best practice guiding principles on this.
All members are encouraged to support The Essex Alliance initiatives through conversation and communication with their contacts, the wider sector and their local community
There is currently no membership fee.
Task & finish groups may be appointed for different purposes to run for whatever period is appropriate, e.g. to respond to consultations or for specific functions of The Essex Alliance.
A Steering Group will exist to prepare and deliver on an annual plan with clear objectives. The Steering Group will continue to consist of interested members who are strategic leaders from across the sector who self-nominate via The Essex Alliance website. The Steering Group will elect their Chair, Vice Chair and Communications Lead. A maximum of 12 steering group members per annum. If there are expressions of interest from more than 12 then a voting system will be employed.
The Essex Alliance Steering Group will determine an annual programme of events and meetings.
The Steering Group is accountable to the full membership of The Essex Alliance. The Essex Alliance is independent and is accountable to itself.
