‘Participation Works’ strategy launched

Groundswell Timeline / 2020

July 2020 saw the launch of Groundswell’s three year ‘Participation Works’ strategy (2020-2023). The strategy was launched four months after the UK (and much of the world) was  forced into lock down because of COVID-19. Participation Works was developed through insight from our 2019 away day (with staff, volunteers and trustees); the national #HealthNow partnership; multiple sessions with staff and volunteers to shape the Progression Programme; and the development of  business plans for our social enterprise ambitions.

Participation Works is a strategy with three interconnected themes. Participation is at our core because people have the right to be involved in decisions that affect their lives; this leads to better insight and better decisions. The three themes are Progression, Good Health and Creating Change.
