Evidence, Policy and Practice for Community Engagement

Health and social care organisations face a major challenge – how to engage people, patients and communities to deliver better health and wellbeing outcomes for less cost and to address health inequalities at the same time.

Many commissioners and service managers are starting to recognise the benefits of community engagement: “Without citizen participation and community engagement fostered by public service organisations, it will be difficult to improve penetration of interventions and to impact on health inequalities.”
(Marmot (2010) Fair Society, Healthy Lives, p151).

At Health Together, we combine practical experience of policy making and programme delivery incorporating community engagement with academic rigour and knowledge of the evidence base.

Health Together offer a bespoke service. We can help you identify what your organisation wants to do and how to make it happen. From research and needs assessment, through to commissioning, programme planning, delivery and evaluation we can support you to engage with people, patients and communities.

We can provide facilitation, policy development, evidence briefings, report writing, programme design, research and evaluation.

We work with local authorities, clinical commissioning groups, NHS providers, and voluntary and community organisations and social enterprises. We have done a lot of work with Healthwatch both nationally and locally. We are happy to consider both large and small commissions.
