The Network for East Anglian Collaborative Outreach (neaco) delivers targeted and regional outreach activities across East Anglia as part of the National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP). neaco aims to support the most disadvantaged young people in England to progress into higher education.

The University of Cambridge acts as lead partner and is working in collaboration with Anglia Ruskin University, University of East Anglia, Norwich University of the Arts, and the University of Suffolk as well as Further Education (FE) Colleges, secondary schools and other third sector organisations. neaco works with targeted areas of East Anglia where participation in higher education is lower than would be expected based on GCSE attainment.

neaco aims to address the government’s targets to:

  • double the proportion of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds in higher education by 2020
  • increase by 20% the number of students in higher education from ethnic minority groups
  • address the under-representation of young men from disadvantaged backgrounds in higher education

Further information about the neaco project can be found on the neaco website: www.takeyourplace.ac.uk
