Driving improvements in health, social care, and wellbeing services through patient, public and stakeholder engagement and insight.
Evolving Communities is a community interest company (CIC). We specialise in stakeholder engagement and insight to drive improvements in health and social care. We deliver professional consultancy and local Healthwatch services, combining sector expertise and experience with a human touch, and collaborative approach.
We give those who use and provide services a voice to influence positive change in health and social care, at a national, regional, and local level.
Evolving Communities Consultancy delivers stakeholder engagement and insight to evaluate health and social care services and identify impactful solutions to improve the quality and effectiveness of care.
Our local Healthwatch services deliver independent community engagement on behalf of local authorities, to inform developments in local health and social care services.
We work with a broad range of health and social care organisations and service providers, including local authorities, clinical commissioning groups, NHS trusts, NHS England and public, voluntary and private sector providers. We connect and collaborate with diverse groups of people and communities, at a national and local level.
“Both councils would like to congratulate Healthwatch Dorset for the excellent work they have achieved in 2019/20. Evolving Communities and the Healthwatch team can take great credit for helping to establish a new service delivery model for Dorset whilst maintaining the very important role of listening to people to influence decision making and to make positive change.”
“Evolving Communities involved residents in exploring local views on the barriers and enablers to eating well in Podsmead. The aim of this work was to gather insights to inform community-led action to enable families to access and eat a healthy diet. We were really impressed with the robust and inclusive approach to this research and with the quality and accessibility of the final report.”
