Survey of engagement with health and wellbeing boards

Regional Voices is surveying the voluntary sector about engagement with health and wellbeing boards regularly over a two year period- to see what is working well, what could work better and what support would help. The survey is aimed at each of voluntary sector representatives on health and wellbeing boards, Healthwatch representatives on health and wellbeing boards and the wider voluntary sector. It asks about routes into the health and wellbeing board- how the voluntary sector is able to influence the joint strategic needs assessment, the health and wellbeing strategy and local commissioning.  We aim to capture how engagement with the boards is changing over time.

Thank you to everyone who shared their views in these three surveys (780 responses in total!)- which are being used to influence policy makers, develop support mechanisms and share interesting practice.
