What makes a good place?
How can Councils as place leaders unlock community benefits through anchor networks?
This session will focus on how Councils as place leaders can unlock community benefit through anchor networks. We will share lessons gathered as part of the London Anchor Institutions Network (LAIN) by a group of boroughs, anchors and London Councils, supported by Bloomberg Associates.
This is an opportunity to learn, to make new connections and to share experiences as we seek to build a community of practice around this way of working in London.
London’s Anchor Institutions’ Network (LAIN) brings together some of the capital’s biggest organisations, who have pledged to work collaboratively to support the city’s recovery from the pandemic, with a focus on delivering opportunities for people, businesses and places most impacted by the crisis.
This network brings together people working in policy & strategy working in local government across London to learn new insights on cross-cutting issues and new methods in how to develop insight, policy, strategy & change. This helps them support their organisations make sense of how to tackle issues which cut across various services and that require a whole system approach across local places to tackle.
