Your guide to community engagement

A useful guide to engaging and involving our community in the development of our health and care services.


Community engagement is a way of developing a working relationship between public bodies with individuals and groups from our county.

By ensuring that our health and care providers work closely together, our services are joined up and focused on the needs of the people who use them.

Being clear about why you are engaging people will help you to use the three steps to engage our community – plan, do and review.
