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” brought 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 vision for the Network to be truly fabulous!

A lot has changed in the last two years with Covid that has had a huge impact on our strategic direction! A lot of this impact has been positive and has brought our work to focus a lot more on the Provider Collaborative workstreams, as well as more specific Project Work and of course all of the virtual engagement events that we now hold.

Due to this our strategy is currently being re-visited to encompass everything that the Network covers in this new world as we all “recover” from Covid. Watch this space…

I know, right! Vegetables in a cake…what an abomination! Or so I thought. I can comfortably and confidently say that I am now converted and will be exploring other vegetable-based cake recipes after trying Nash’s courgette cake with lemon curd filling and cream cheese frosting!
Vegetables…in a cake? Surely not!

Rick Mason Introduction Blog. Thought it was high time to introduce myself, as one of the new members of the team here with the Yorkshire & Humber Involvement Network. My role is Involvement and Engagement Co-Ordinator, based primarily across the adult secure services in West Yorkshire, but I’m sure the role will see me finding my way into other services in the network!
