In a nutshell, the Engagement Champions programme is about capturing the views of local people and communities, especially those who are seldom heard, specifically in relation to health.
Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) organisations are so well placed in communities to engage with residents.
This is where you come in!
Delivered by VSI Alliance on behalf of NHS Calderdale Clinical Commissioning Group, the Engagement Champions programme supports reps from VCSE organisations to undertake training and become an accredited ‘Engagement Champion’ and give your service users and communities a voice when it comes to health services and proposals.
