The Essex Crowd

#EssexCrowd

Bringing people together behind good ideas that communities want to see happen!

Created by Essex County Council. Powered by Spacehive.

The Essex Crowd is all about bringing people together behind good ideas that communities want to see happen. We want to back local good ideas that create connections and bring people together. You’ll have the best idea of what might work in your local area, so why not share your idea and let others join in?
