Upcoming Events

In light of the current situation with Covid-19 all events are currently being held virtually over Microsoft Teams.

We are also available virtually to link in with services and are continuing to support and involved service users and staff on an individual service level as well as bringing people together (virtually) within the Provider Collaboratives and across Yorkshire and Humber.

We will continue to keep you updated via the website and the distribution list as to what we have planned and as and when things are likely to change and we can get back to Sandal!

Have a look on our events page for more detail about our upcoming meetings. 

Stay safe and stay in touch, we would love to hear from you.

Best wishes – the Involvement Network Team

Who We Are

Welcome to the Yorkshire and Humber Involvement Network website!

The Yorkshire and Humber Involvement Network brings together service users and staff from 15 different secure services that include NHS and private organisations providing low and medium secure care. The Network is about sharing best practice, service improvement, and collaborative working to improve the experience and quality of support that people receive.


What we do - Strategy

The 5 year Yorkshire and Humber Involvement Strategy 2018 – 2023 “From Functional to Fabulous” brings together the 4 main themes of the work of the Network which are Engagement, Motivation, Mindset and Culture Change and Support to Deliver Outcomes. The strategy was developed by all the stakeholders in the Network to think about a real vision for the next 5 years and how we can ensure that we keep learning and building on the Network and become truly fabulous!


Our Team

Hi there! We are the team that brings together the Yorkshire and Humber Involvement Network. Our team works with service users, staff and commissioners to continually engage and sustain the Network to ensure it is proactive, motivating and fun. We come together as a team with our different skills and abilities which ensures that we all bring something fresh and creative to the Network. We use evidence based practice as well as innovative methods to generate ideas and ensure we are productive. We strive to do this in accessible and inventive ways.

“Historically, pandemics have forced humans to break with the past and imagine their world anew. This one is no different. It is a portal, a gateway between one world and the next. We can choose to walk through it with all of our baggage. Or we can walk through lightly, with little luggage, ready to imagine another world.”

I have been in services for 9 years in various hospitals around the country and it has been very challenging at times for me and my family. I didn’t think until now, that the challenges we face as a family would test us any further, until Covid-19 came. It came and shook everyone up as a nation, for me I didn’t expect to go through anymore heartache but the challenges that coincided with the virus were unexpected for everyone, especially me.
