Welcome to the East Suffolk Partnership

East Suffolk Partnership fifth Annual Forum at Trinity park Conference centre.


10 November 2017 (9am – 1pm followed by lunch), Trinity Park Conference Centre

Plan for 200 delegates

Unlocking the potential of growth locally

The concept of inclusive growth is gaining momentum – but what is ‘inclusive growth’ and why does it matter?

At its core inclusive growth advocates economic growth that benefits everyone - and we will explore how to deliver economic growth whilst improving essential local services, supporting communities and protecting the environment. 

This year’s Forum will reflect the key issues important to the ESP:

  • Our people – healthy and resilient individuals
  • Our environment – maximising natural capital
  • Our places – resilient communities and businesses

This important annual event offers excellent networking opportunities and will give you the opportunity to participate in a collaborative approach to working in East Suffolk.  Through a programme of presentations, workshops and seminars delegates will examine how individuals and communities in East Suffolk can connect to, and feel the benefits from, economic growth.

Booking is essential and can be made online.

The East Suffolk Partnership (ESP) is a voluntary arrangement that attracts organisations from the public, business, community and voluntary sectors to work together for the benefit of East Suffolk. The ESP is aligned with the district boundaries of Suffolk Coastal and Waveney and operates at a level which enables strategic decisions that affect East Suffolk and also drive delivery of projects and initiatives at a relatively local level.

To help make sense of the interconnected agendas of public sector reform, growth, and localism the ESP commissioned the East Suffolk Profile and  has identified an number of major goals in the following three areas:

  • Our People – Healthy and Resilient Individuals
  • Our Environment – Maximising Natural Capital
  • Our Places - Resilient Communities and Businesses

To deliver on its goals the ESP Board oversees a rolling programme of work focused on specific issues. Detailed work to deliver the outcomes is coordinated through a work programme managed by the ESP Programme Officer Group between meetings of the Board.

The ESP has a key role to influence and change the way resources are allocated within East Suffolk. Increasingly the ESP is also taking a more proactive role in drawing additional funding into East Suffolk: from the relatively small amounts that the members of the East Suffolk Resource Network can help local communities groups to access, through to significant amounts that the ESP is well placed to attract as an established partnership with good networks.
