We want to make sure that people who live, work and invest in our area are involved and included in the decisions we make.

We do this by using the various means we have at our disposal to contact people and ask them to participate. These include use of social media, our publications SKtoday and Skyline, databases of service users and our citizens' panel.

We set out how we will do this, our commitments to consultation and the principles we work to in our consultation framework and toolkit.

Get involved and have your say

Our citizens' panel is a group of 1,000 local residents selected to reflect the characteristics of the people who live in the district of South Kesteven as a whole - in terms of gender, age, disability and geography.

About our citizens' panel

Our consultation framework and toolkit  

Our consultation framework and toolkit document underpins the approach we take to consultation. It sets out how we will work with our residents, local businesses and other stakeholders to make sure that they are included and involved in the decisions that we make.

The consultation framework and toolkit document was adopted back in May 2013 and has two sections. Our consultation framework sets out the principles we work to, what we want to achieve and our commitments to consultation. Our consultation toolkit acts as a guide for our residents and other stakeholders so they know how we will do things and what to expect if they are asked to help.
