Over the past few years, statutory organisations have been getting better at involving users in the development, planning and delivery of services.  While nationally there are many examples of innovative practice, there is still little evidence that involvement is a mainstream activity alongside other policy and performance requirements.

Recent policy changes such as GP commissioning and the development of Foundation Trusts has raised the profile of the need to involve the public in determining needs of local populations and improving service delivery.  A renewed focus on Assets Based approaches such as Assets Audits and Assets Based Community Development (ABCD) has reinforced this drive.

This is a broad-based course which is aimed at frontline staff in all organisations.  It is designed to help the learner to understand the issues faced in engaging the public in services and to build confidence in engaging with the public.  This is a practically based course which stands alone and also acts as a foundation for the Service Improvement through Engagement and Involvement Course.
