Establishing sustainable partnerships across your local community is a great way to showcase your organisation as an employer of choice. It can also help you strengthen your workforce supply, create a workforce which is reflective of your local community and highlight the variety of opportunities available in the NHS.

In this web section we will guide you through schools and community engagement, helping you to understand the opportunities available to you, and the benefits you can expect to see in your organisation.
