Who we are and what we've done so far
Our role is to champion the health and social care rights of all people in England from birth to death: children, young people and adults.
As with any new organisation, we have spent time interpreting what our role means, and testing this out with stakeholders across the health and social care world.
Understanding where we add most value has been important – we are a relatively small player in a complex and vast system. Our aim is to focus on those areas where we can make most difference.
We need to set the agenda rather than just respond to what others are doing. However, we can only do this if we have the right priorities and partnerships to argue powerfully and credibly for change.
