Developing a strategy for your public engagement support programme requires you to really tune in to how your colleagues and partners make sense of public engagement. Your strategy needs to ‘go with the grain’ and align with colleagues’ goals and values. It is much more likely to succeed if people feel that they have been listened to and involved in the development process.

Therefore, making time to talk, discuss, and explore how people make sense of public engagement is a vital part of the process. In this short guide we share a few of the frameworks and tools that we have used at the NCCPE to focus these kinds of vital conversations.
