VOiCE – The sitemap


Voice the detail

VOiCE - The Detail

  • In relation toparticular community engagement initiatives VOiCE will support you to:

  • Reflect on what you are trying to achieve.

  • Develop plans that relate to your purpose .

  • Monitor progress in implementing your plan.

  • Evaluate the process and outcomes.

  • Learn lessons for future activity.


Features of voice online

Featuresof VOiCE Online

  • A multi user environment - invite colleagues or partners to be editors of reviewers of a particular engagement.

  • Secure password protected user accounts - you decide what information to share.

  • Downloadable reports - share reports asPDF or Word formats.

  • E-mail reports from the system.

  • Accountable progress - built in user log - information on user activity within shared engagements - who made what changes to the engagement report.

  • A document bank - upload document to the system which relate to the engagement.

  • Strategic analysis - review engagements in your area and produce reports which pull together the information you select in one report.

  • Fully accessible site design - meeting a very high standard of accessible web design.


Analyse what is the purpose of the engagement

Analyse - What is the purpose of the engagement?

  • Think about the level you will engage the community at:

    • Inform

      • This means we are only going to tell people what we plan to do.

    • Consult

      • This means we will offer people restricted options to choose between.

    • Engage

      • To take shared decisions - This means the community will influence options and choices of action.

      • To take shared action - This means the community will share in any action taken.

      • To support community led action - This means the community will lead the action.


Plan what difference do we want to make

Plan - What difference do we want to make?

  • Outcomes are the changes that occur or the difference that is made for individuals, groups, families, organisations and communities

  • Outcomes answer the ‘so what?’ question!

  • In the context of community engagement, outcomes will normally relate to the process of consulting people or involving people in influencing decisions, or taking action on key issues that affect their lives


Identified need

Identified Need

  • In your local area, support organisations and agencies express concern in relation to the poor take-up of health and social care services by older Asian women. A needs-assessment has highlighted poor communication between community health and social care services and this “hard to reach” group, with the result that there is little awareness re the services available to them. There is also evidence to suggest that there is uncertainty about how to go about accessing services. A local support organisation has highlighted social isolation as a key health issue for this group and a contributing factor to the issues outlined above.

Task

  • Identify 2 or 3 possible outcomes (the difference that you would want to make) in relation to the identified need.


Possible outcomes

Possible Outcomes

  • Older Asian women will have better access to community health and social care services

  • Older Asian women will be less isolated

  • Improved communication between older Asian women and public service providers


Plan how will we know

Plan - How will we know?

  • Outcome indicators are measures that describe how well we are achieving our outcomes

  • They define the evidence (qualitative and quantitative) to be collected to measure progress and help us decide if our outcomes are achieved

  • Outcome indicators are our evaluation criteria set at the planning stage – so that we know how to judge success and we have the information or evidence to make that assessment


Identifying indicators task

Identifying Indicators - Task

  • Identify potential indicators in relation to each outcome that will provide evidence for measuring whether outcomes are achieved

  • Think about how to build the process of collecting evidence into practice and procedures


Possible indicators

Older Asian women will have better access to community health and social care services

Older Asian women will know what community health & social care services are available in the local area

Older Asian women will know how to access community health & social care services

Older Asian women will receive more community health & social care

Possible Indicators


Possible indicators1

Older Asian women will be less isolated

Older Asian women will independently attend more activities in the community

Older Asian women will have more contact with other Asian women

Possible Indicators


Possible indicators2

Improved communication between older Asian women and public service providers

Older Asian women will know that they can ask for interpreters when they attend appointments

Older Asian women will use interpreters more often

Older Asian women have better relationships with their health and social care providers, and can understand the advice given by these providers

Possible Indicators


Plan what will we do

Plan - What will we do?

  • Methods are only useful if they lead to the outcomes or change desired

  • There are likely to be many actions or methods available to us – the important thing is to choose those most likely to achieve our outcomes

Strategic planning

Strategic Planning

  • Across all the community engagement that your organisation or partnership is involved in VOiCE will provide a data bank that can be used to analyse:

    • What engagement is being (and has been) conducted.

    • What issues and needs the engagement addresses.

    • Where it is happening.

    • Who is involved in it.

    • What has or has not been effective.

    • Whilst the primary purpose of VOiCE is to support effective engagement practice, this aspect of VOiCE provides management information that can be integrated into other management information systems.


Planning your practice session

Planning your practice session

  • On Day 2 you will be delivering a 1 hour practice session to your peers on an aspect of VOiCE.

  • In groups of 2 or 3:

  • Decide what aspect of VOiCE you will cover

  • Decide how you are going to deliver session

  • Allocate tasks
