Voluntary Action Leeds (VAL) aims to ensure the voice of communities in Leeds are heard and influence the design of services. The Leeds Voices project (commissioned by NHS Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group Partnership) is a key element of this work and ambition.
About Leeds Voices
The project supports the engagement of citizens and communities in the development of health services in the city. Our approach is unique and is achieved through three distinct but complementary elements, enabling us to hear voices from a range of communities including the most marginalised:
Engaging Voices — works with a network of third sector organisations to engage with marginalised communities
Working Voices – works with employers in Leeds to engage with employees in the workplace
Leeds Health Ambassadors – a volunteering programme supporting engagement with the wider public and patients in Leeds
During 2018 Leeds Voices supported the CCG with a number of engagement projects, enabling a wide range of people to have a voice. Find out more about the projects and what the CCG has done in response to the feedback received, by clicking on the links below.
