The Local Involvement Network Service
What is LINk?
Tameside Local Involvement Network (LINk) is a new network for local residents and voluntary and community groups.
It has been set up to give people a chance to have a say in improving local health and social care services.
The LINk aims to allow every local resident to have a voice and comment on the services you receive.
You can get involved to work with the people who run your services to help make them better for you, your friends and family.
The Government gave the LINk real powers which means that the people who provide your local doctors and dentists, run your local hospital, control your local care homes, daycare centres and sheltered housing, all have to listen to what the LINk says and consult it when making any changes to your services.
This gives local people real power to influence change at the highest level and help to improve services for everyone in Tameside.
The Local Involvement Network service (LINks) in Tameside is currently at the early stages and in the process of being developed by the host organisation.
