Working Voices

The Working Voices project delivers public sector consultations through private sector organisations to give working people a voice in the development of services. Employees will also have the opportunity to access health messages, updates about NHS services and take part in health promotions.

The project engages employees in consultation and engagement activities, which helps to ensure that health services meet the needs of all the people of Leeds.

Voluntary Action Leeds provides support, administration and training to enable private sector organisations to deliver engagements effectively with their employees .Consultations come in various forms and delivery can be tailored to meet your company’s needs:

  • Completing online surveys
  • Taking part in focus groups
  • Engaging with employees at team meetings or away days
  • Training and supporting employees to act as working voices ambassadors

Participating organisations receive feedback about the consultations they take part in and resulting developments within services, so that employees can see how their feedback is being used to improve health services.


The project is funded by Leeds’ three Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) based in North, West and South East Leeds.
