As the UK population ages, one of Anchor’s main challenges is to ensure that our services meet the aspirations and changing social needs of our customers.

Our team of Community Partnership Managers ensure that useful and beneficial links are created within the community. They support the property and care home managers across their regions with activities and events that aim to engage both existing customers and surrounding communities and tackle issues such as isolation and loneliness. 

Anchor recognises that there is still a stigma attached to care homes and conditions such as dementia. Our Community Partnership Managers support on-going programmes of educational activities which inform the public around the valuable services offered by care homes, such as dementia care and allowing our community to be a place of trust and a positive experience for both older people and their families. 

Each Community Partnership Manager covers a specific region of England and is keen to hear from health and social care professionals as well as community groups and organisations who would be interested in working with Anchor and building positive local partnerships.
