This report considers what engagement work the HWBB in Sheffield has carried out in recent years. It maps engagement work against the 9 ambitions of the current health and wellbeing strategy; identifies gaps for particular ambitions and/or for particular demographic groups; and considers examples of good practice and areas where engagement could have more impact.

The report discusses issues relating to:
* The role clarity of the HWBB (including how national directives and reforms affect this)
* How to have conversations about strategy, determinants of health and inequalities
* Power dynamics
* The need for safe spaces to discuss issues of inequality
* Enabling and developing people’s capabilities to engage and influence, and the role of the VCS here
* Institutional culture and skills for engagement
*Senior leadership and commitments to drive change across the city
