Working with people and communities

The South East London Integrated Care System (SEL ICS) working with people and communities strategic framework was approved at the Integrated Care Board meeting on 1 July 2022. This outlines an ambition for how this partnership wants to work with local people and communities and what they need to put in place to do this. Local people and people working in south east London have been involved in developing this approach. SEL ICS has tried to address the issues heard through the community engagement that took place to inform the development of their approach including:

  • The need to build relationships and trusts with communities
  • The need to make engagement accessible and inviting,
  • The need to coordinate our engagement better across south east London
  • The need to go out to communities and bring the conversation close to people
  • The need to recognise the impact that engagement has on people.

SEL ICS will continue to develop their ways of working in these areas over the next year.
