Engagement, consultation and involvement


We often ask for the views of our residents on a wide range of topics. You can contribute to live consultations and also find the results of consultations that have been completed.

Our community engagement framework explains our vision and principles when approaching consultation and engagement.

If you would like to hear about surveys and consultations as they open then subscribe to our mailing list and we will keep you up to date with what is happening.

Talking, listening and working together

We have been working closely with the NHS North East Lincolnshire Health and Care Partnership to make best use of our shared resources to improve the health, care and life experiences of everyone living in North East Lincolnshire.

We want to get better at how we talk, listen and work together with our communities. We have adopted the North East Lincolnshire Commitment which can also be adopted by anyone working in North East Lincolnshire.

North East Lincolnshire commitment


We will be clear and honest about:

  • how you can get involved
  • what we are doing with what you’ve told us


We will:

  • hear your voice and what you have to say
  • use what you tell us to bring about change
  • be open to be challenged on the way we do things

Working together

We will:

  • encourage all of our communities to take part
  • come to the places where you are
  • work together with you and others to make the best use of time and money

Our strategy

The talking, listening and working together strategy (PDF, 339KB)  sets out how the council and the NHS North East Lincolnshire Health and Care Partnership will work to meet this commitment.

We have a Talking, Listening and Working Together steering group made up of officers from the council and NHS North East Lincolnshire Health and Care Partnership, along with community members and representatives from the VSCE Forum who are working together to make the changes we need to ensure we meet the commitment.


We have also launched our Engagement toolkit which provides advice and guidance around engagement methods and processes.

If your organisation has any engagement-based activity coming up please contact our team so it can be included in the forward plan and engagement can be coordinated across partners.
