Consumer advocacy and community groups expect to be consulted from the get go.

Our expert team works alongside our clients to ensure community engagement is meaningful, there is clear and open consultation, and to ensure the community sees their impact on the decision-making process.

Traditionally, community engagement referred to consulting with local residents near where an organisation operated, and extended to groups such as local community groups, schools, and businesses (among others). However, the digital world has created new communities, as social media provides people with direct platforms to gain the support of the masses.

Well Haslem Mayhew understands the challenges of community engagement and how to best engage. Our talented team provides traditional and digital services to ensure effective two-way communication, minimising issues and reaching organisational objectives.

We work with our clients to:

  • Identify and understand their stakeholders
  • Strategise and message
  • Consult, including providing feedback loops
  • Listen and review the feedback
  • Negotiate.
