A bit more about consultation & engagement...
Consultation and engagement is a highly valuable process through which the collective voice of communities, customers, service users, or project beneficiaries can be heard. Good consultation & engagement will inform, guide and ensure the success of any project or activity. It will also enable project leaders to determine, evidence, and document key issues, needs and/or priorities, and will assist them in the effective planning and delivery of the project.
To get the best out of any consultation & engagement work it is important to ensure that people are well informed, are clear how and why you are engaging with them, and most importantly that they understand the aims and objectives of the activity.
There is a considerable range of consultation & engagement methods that can be employed. When deciding which method(s) to use, it is important to consider: the kind of information that needs to be disseminated and/or collected; the size and type of the area or group to be consulted; the time, money and resources available.
