Event description

Description

Leaders for... would like to invite anyone who is committed to making a positive difference to their communities to this special event hosted by City of York Council.

The theme for our discussion will be 'Anchor institutions - supporting growth and reducing poverty'.

In a case study released in January this year The Joseph Rowntree Foundation says "Anchor organisations (anchors) such as local authorities, hospitals, universities, housing associations and large private sector organisations can play an important role in supporting growth and reducing poverty locally. Through their employment and procurement practices they can directly deliver more inclusive growth and they can also be examples of good practice to inspire other local organisations to act, helping set the tone for the local economy."(Click here for more info)

This event will aim to discuss the ways in which this is being done and to share good practice that all agencies can adopt to help them support positive change in their city.

Leaders for... events are informal discussions, our aim is to connect people and inspire them to take action.
