Reaching Out - Community Engagement and Health'
This is the third in a series of publications from the IDeA's Healthy Communities programme, this time written in conjunction with NICE (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence). The document explores the importance of engaging communities in health promotion and health services; and the health benefits that engagement can have.
It builds on the NICE guidance on community engagement and health, published earlier this year. It reflects recent government commitments to engaging the public further in democratic and decision-making processes. These have been outlined in the Community Empowerment White Paper ‘Communities in Control'.
