Consultations: Your Sefton Your say

Share your views and take part in our online consultations and also view the results of recent surveys.

Our main aims

Your Sefton Your Say - Colour

The Council and a number of partners have developed a Public Engagement and Consultation Framework which sets out how we will speak with and listen to our communities and involve them in the work we do.

One of the ways we will do this is through the Sefton Public Engagement and Consultation Panel.  

The Panel 

  • Sefton Council and its partners recognise that it is important for people to have a say in the services that are planned and delivered. We are committed to delivering high quality services to residents, workers or visitors to responsible for ensuring that public engagement and consultation in Sefton complies with the standards contained within the Public Engagement and Consultation Framework.
  • Includes representatives from the Council, Sefton Partnership, Sefton CVS, Sefton Young Advisors, Sefton Community, Voluntary and Equalities Sector, Healthwatch Sefton and Mersey Fire and Rescue Service. 
  • Meets every two months and receives proposals from partner organisations wishing to carry out public engagement and consultation activity.

This means consulting our community when making decisions about the services they receive, engaging our community when making changes to the delivery of existing services and informing our community of the changes that take place as a result of them giving their views.

Meeting the standards 

If you are asked to take part in a public consultation you should:

  • be told what the consultation is about and why you are being asked your views
  • receive information that is easy to read and understand
  • be told about the results and what will happen to the information
  • know how else you can get involved.
