Launch of the ‘Engagement Matrix’

The launch of the ‘Engagement Matrix’ at the ‘Gathering’ on 27th February was welcomed by a positive response from participants at the Health and Social Care Seminar.   The audience of third sector and public sector representatives heard Clare Stevens, Voluntary Health Scotland, Selina Ross, West Dunbartonshire Interface and Sandra Cairney, East Dunbartonshire CHCP describe the aim of the ‘Engagement Matrix’ and emphasise its use in collaborative working on the planning and delivery of health and social services.

CHEX was one of the partners who developed the tool through a Scottish Government short life action group. The ‘Engagement Matrix’ consists of a template for third sector organisations and health boards to complete together and focuses on:

  • mapping existing engagement
  • identifying where there are gaps
  • agreeing what developments could be undertaken

Led by Voluntary Health Scotland, the partners will now work with the network of Health Board leads for the third sector in promoting and supporting use of the tool and guidance.  This will help to ensure that both sectors bring together their expertise and experience in the delivery of services.
