3. Why do we engage?
We engage to develop services for people in the right way and with the money available we engage with the public, service users, and carers, as well as those who work for or with us so that we develop services in the right way and with the money available. We have a legal duty to do so, known as the ‘duty to consult’, as well as other legal responsibilities. We also want to engage because it is the right thing to do.
