More about the LINk

Sharing ideas and experiences helps make services more suited to what people need. The LINk can provide useful information about what the people who use services want and the issues that matter to them.

The LINk: 

  • Seeks to listen to the views of more people in their community.
  • Provides better feedback about what people need and want.
  • Engages the whole community.
  • Encourages service providers to allocate more money to services that local people most value.
  • Helps service providers make more informed decisions about the commissioning and running of services.
