Welcome to Engage 2020; a virtual conference brought to you by the Engagement Practitioners Network (EPN) to support public engagement professionals across the NHS, voluntary and other partner organisations to explore new ways to engage with local communities.

This conference format is new and exciting, ‘Engage 2020’ will run for two weeks (16 - 27 November). Co-designed with network members, it includes ‘main stage’ sessions, masterclasses, solution surgeries, community panels, practice development and peer-led learning sessions on a variety of online platforms. There are also a range of well-being sessions, these are designed to support you in these challenging times but also to inspire creative approaches to involving people and communities.


The overarching theme of Engage 2020 focuses on ‘What we have learned about community engagement from the recent pandemic, and how we can apply this to the recovery of the health system, building a better health system for all’.
