About Engage

Welcome to Engage, a central resource for involvement in Health and Social Care (HSC) in Northern Ireland. This website will provide staff, service users, carers and the public with a wide range of information, guides and links to support Personal and Public Involvement (PPI) in HSC.

Engage will encourage you to get involved, identify opportunities for involvement across HSC, and showcase the difference it can make. There are also a range of resources and tools to support HSC to involve service users, carers and the public.

The Public Health Agency (PHA) has responsibility for the Engage website, and for overseeing the implementation of Personal and Public Involvement policy, also known as PPI. The PHA works through the Regional HSC PPI Forum, which has representation from all Health and Social Care organisations as well as service user, carer or community and voluntary sector representatives, to help inform, shape, guide and deliver this work.
