East Suffolk Resource Network (ESRN)

East Suffolk Resource Network (ESRN) is a network of voluntary sector infrastructure organisations and public sector partners who have signed a partnership agreement to work towards a set of agreed objectives.

Network members have a shared vision of improving the quality of peoples lives and communities, especially for the most disadvantaged, through the provision of a network of robust infrastructure services to frontline Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise Organisations in East Suffolk. Partners aim to improve the provision of high quality, accessible and relevant ‘frontline’ services to local Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise Sector groups by working together.

The key objectives for ESRN are to:

  • Facilitate and support community led planning
  • Develop the community, voluntary and social enterprise sector to deliver key services
  • Co-ordinate the support for the community, voluntary and social enterprise sector from key agencies
  • Increase the participation of East Suffolk citizens in informal and formal volunteering
