  4. METHODS: we will agree and use methods of engagement that are fit for purpose
  5. WORKING TOGETHER: we will agree and use clear procedures that enable the participants to work with one another effectively and efficiently
  6. SHARING INFORMATION: we will ensure that necessary information is communicated between the participants
  7. WORKING WITH OTHERS: we will work effectively with others with an interest in the engagement
  8. IMPROVEMENT: we will develop actively the skills, knowledge and confidence of all the participants
  9. FEEDBACK: we will feed back the results of the engagement to the wider community and agencies affected
  10. MONITORING AND EVALUATION: we will monitor and evaluate whether the engagement achieves its purposes and meets the national standards for community engagement
