Engaging working people to have their say on health services
What is Working Voices?
Everyone deserves an equal say in what changes are made to the health service, however working age people are often identified as one of the lesser heard groups on these issues.
The Leeds Voices project Working Voices aims to address that by seeking to engage the voices of working people. By partnering with organisations who run activities such as focus groups or survey programmes with their employees, we ensure that workers views are heard.
Become a Working Voices Partner
Your organisation can become a partner in the Working Voices network which is made up of a wide range of employers all across Leeds. Working Voices partners are willing to involve their employees with engagements, which means asking employees to either complete a survey or be involved with focus groups around public and health care services that impact on them directly.
A key benefit of becoming a Working Voices partner is that it contributes to your Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) portfolio.
Involvement from employees can be classed as a valuable micro volunteering opportunity – a survey is about 15 minutes of volunteering and focus group involvement can be up to two hours.
All views shared ultimately benefit you and your employees as these help decision makers to plan and deliver public and health care services which better meet the needs of all people and communities in Leeds.
The Working Voices project benefits employers, employees and public and health care services alike.
