Suffolk County Council is committed to involving as many people as possible when decisions need to be made. Consultation helps the council to form policy and allocate resources.
Consultation and engagement guidance
Suffolk County Council consults at a strategic level with the following groups to inform its corporate policies and priorities:

Consultation enables us to identify trends and emerging challenges. This allows us to plan the allocation of resources, and to measure the success of improvements we have implemented.
Consultation at local level helps us to identify the needs and expectations of specific groups so that we can incorporate these into the way our services are planned and delivered.
