The Essex LDP is part of a large and ground-breaking national pilot involving 12 LDPs. Each LDP is undertaking robust and comprehensive evaluation to learn what innovative approaches have worked and which ones have failed. All LDPs are committed to sharing the learning of successful approaches as quickly and effectively as possible, using different formats of training, learning resources, events, storytelling, videos, blogs, and reports.


Stories are a very important way that we can learn about the impact of the work of the LDP. The LDP is collecting stories from system leaders and local people:




Our sharing learning events are staged three or four times a year, and invites people from across Essex to learn about the work of the LDP, as well as share the good practice from all of the stakeholders.

The events are themed around the important issues for the LDP, including system settings, target audiences, and underpinning themes such as social movements and communication.

The events share information using the twitter handle #ConnectTogether.
