Public Participation Online Learning Programme

Welcome to the Public Participation team’s online learning programme.  These sessions are about working in partnership with people and communities and include a mix of webinars and workshops, hosted by the Public Participation team. The sessions are aimed at colleagues working in or with NHS organisations in engagement activity with people and communities. Others working in the public and voluntary sectors may also find our online learning beneficial and are welcome to attend.

Some sessions are aimed at people who are newer to working with people and communities, helping them to build their knowledge and their toolkit of resources and ideas. Some sessions are aimed at more experienced engagement practitioners, helping them further explore good practice and innovative approaches. Sessions focus on:

  • Understanding how to build partnerships with people and communities
  • Reducing health inequalities through better understanding of the barriers faced by under-represented communities, and how to overcome these
  • Sharing inspiring ideas that can be put into practice, and tools and resources to support this
  • Meeting the legal duties to involve the public in the work of the NHS
