Our Partnership is made up of organisations working closely together to plan services and address the challenges facing health and care services across the area.
In this section you will find links to useful information and publications about our partnership.
We are committed to meaningful conversations with people, on the right issues at the right time. We believe this is an important part of the way we work.
Engagement gives people an opportunity to have their say on services. By gathering people's views, it helps us understand what matters to people.

Our Partnership continues to raise the profile of its diverse workforce.
During Black History Month in October 2020, a workshop was hosted with our leaders to help educate and raise awareness, build change within our programmes and devise an action plan for change. Ethnic minority voices in our communities and in our Race Equality Network (formerly known as the BAME Network) led the development of this workshop from the start, supported by our dedicated System Leadership and Development colleagues.
Topics covered included areas such as unconscious bias and racial micro-aggression which helps employees learn how their individual behaviour is influenced by their own blind spots and stereotypes, along with how we can build Allyship within our own organisations.
In this Partnership blog, staff network members from our Race Equality Network, Wasim Feroze and Cherill Watterston, talk about how the death of George Floyd and the international attention on the Black Lives Matter movement, along with the impact of Covid-19, have bought into sharp focus the ongoing racial injustice, inequity and everyday discrimination faced by ehtnic minority communities.
We cannot undo decades of systemic racism overnight but we can respond to the events of this year with a renewed focus. This training is just part of our commitment to start the journey and deliver the positive shift necessary.
This short introduction to the Racial Inequalities Training features Wasim Feroze from Leeds City Council who is a member of the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Race Equality Network.
Wasim talks about what he hopes the workshops will achieve throughout the system, why and how the training has been developed, its importance, its aims and the purpose of the pledges.
We are delighted that these inspirational workshops are now available to everyone and invite our partners to actively encourage their employees to take part. Please share this advert for the training with others – we want as many people to take part in this training as possible. Please start your journey by completing the modules below.
