Inclusivity & Council of Governor Elections:

UK Engage works with Foundation Trusts to explore ways of enhancing equality, diversity and inclusion messaging in Council of Governor Election materials.

As a leading election services provider, we want to understand your challenges so that we can help develop messaging and visuals to apply to nomination, ballot forms and other communications, whether they are printed or online, to raise awareness among all members groups and to promote messages of equality, diversity and inclusion.

It is our goal to assist NHS Foundation Trusts to: –

(a) empower all member groups to come forward and nominate themselves for elected positions and,
(b) encourage all member groups to feel they have a voice and vote in your Council of Governor Elections.

Internal Council of Governor Elections:

Once your Council has been elected, your Foundation Trust will need to nominate or elect a lead governor, deputy lead governor/s, along with other positions.  We have options for the way you wish to carry out internal democracy. Opt for our professional managed service where will oversee all proceedings, or our self-managed online voting site so that internal elections can be managed inhouse, year on year.
