Anchored in Place

Back to Programmes

Anchored in Place connects with other public sector organisations and harnesses the energy and passion of local communities. ‘Anchoring’ systems can shift to a community paradigm rather than organisational paradigm; doing with and not to people.

Anchor Institutions are large, typically non-profit organisations like hospitals, local councils, and universities whose long-term sustainability is tied to the wellbeing of the populations they serve (The Health Foundation, 2019).

NHS Anchor Institutions comprise five areas of work, shown in the diagram below. This concept aligns with the extensive place-based work Aqua has done recently across the North West to develop partnership boards and to design and implement place-based models of care.
