North East Lincolnshire Council

Engagement Framework

The Community Engagement Framework (PDF) has been developed to be the key reference for community engagement by the Strategic Advisory Board (SAB).

It sets out the strategic vision and guiding principles for community engagement within North East Lincolnshire. This framework should be used as the starting point for the delivery of all community engagement by the SAB and it is designed to supplement and support our statutory responsibilities.

We have also developed a Community Engagement Toolkit (PDF) to provide advice and guidance around engagement mechanisms, methods and processes.

If you are planning a consultation please complete the Consultation Proposal Form. It will walk you through the consultation planning stage. It will also allow the consultation officer to have all of the information available to identify your needs and the best way to carry out the consultation. If you have any consultation based activity coming up please contact the consultation officer so that it can be included in the forward plan.

The toolkit and framework are built on a wealth of research, experience, and best practice and will help members of the SAB to use methods of engagement that are consistent with the principles of this framework.
