Why we consult
Consultation helps us to understand how a law or policy might affect you. It helps us to find out your views and lets us know about any ideas or suggestions you may have. We consult because your input helps us to improve our ideas and shape our work to make policies more effective.
How we consult
Consultations can take a variety of formats, such as:
- written papers
- public meetings
- focus groups and
- questionnaire exercises.
When a new consultation is launched, we make the relevant documents available to organisations and individuals with an interest in the area of consultation. We also publish details of each formal consultation on our website so that anyone with an interest can access the documents.
There is no set time for consultations, although most are about 12 weeks. All consultations will have a clear s tart and end date.
What happens after the consultation closes
We read every response and consider every opinion as part of the policy-making process.
We then publish a summary of responses, or the individual responses themselves, on our website and hold copies in our library (these are made anonymous when requested). Alongside this, we also publish details of how the consultation is being taken forward.
We want our consultation process to improve our work and be more accessible to you. If you would like to comment about our approach please contact us.
