Our approach to involvement is to make sure we hear the voice and views of people who use, work or have an interest in our services. We are driven to ensure that people who want to get involved have the opportunity to do so. Our approaches are inclusive and designed individually to include and involve the right people.
Before we deliver any involvement activity we will always use what we already know as a starting point. We know that people want us to listen the first time to things they are telling us and we are committed to involving people to gather more insight.
