Public Consultation

A group of people at a public consultation.

Audiences are more likely to understand where you’re coming from if you seek first to understand them. Only then can you unlock the knowledge to engage, motivate and influence people.

Public consultation exercises can prove invaluable when you want to understand the needs and wants of a particular audience, or when you need to sensitively manage projects that could have a major impact on a community or group.

Whether you’re sharing information on a regeneration project or delivering news people might not want to hear, effective public consultation can help you get out in front of the story and retain control of the situation.

Freshfield can provide a comprehensive public consultation service to help you capture deep and meaningful feedback, make sure your audiences are fully informed, and to mitigate potential negativity and opposition.

We have worked successfully with a wide range of organisations in sectors including property and construction, healthcare, education, manufacturing, and tech to run public consultations, engage with stakeholders, and support public affairs and lobbying campaigns.

Whether it’s a community you want to engage with, MPs, councillors, government departments or other agencies, we can help you form a strategy to get your message heard.

From guidance on timings, format, key messages, and channels, through to the physical management of public consultation events, and the collation of data and feedback afterwards, our team has the experience to support you.
