360 Engagement offers new approach

360 Engagement is an organisation which offers a new approach to community and staff engagement.

They work collaboratively with people in communities and in organisations to influence service improvement, have strong links in communities, and are able to engage with seldom heard and diverse groups.

Their vision is to bridge the gap between communities and organisations. They aim to do this by building supportive and collaborative partnerships between organisations and communities.

They also work with organisations to develop skills and enhance their approach to community and staff engagement. They can also market services to previously untapped communities.

A 360 Engagement spokesperson told Barnsley News: “We believe passionately that everyone has the ability to contribute and help improve services and everyone has the right to have their voice heard.

“We also build strategic relationships with community organisations to support them to meet their aims.

“We see people not labels and encourage our partners, clients and communities to celebrate diversity and do the same.

We believe that this is best done by valuing people, building relationships and demonstrating improved services through engagement. We also want to build strategic partnerships with community organisations and build their capacity to be sustainable and effective organisations.
