Public views toolkit

This toolkit considers some tools and techniques to address the question:

“As part of my policy development I would like to take account of the views and values of the public – what should I do?”

Many tools are available and this toolkit does not aim to be comprehensive and present all tools that could be used to find out about or understand the views and values of the public. A set of tools is introduced, as well as means of guiding tool selection. Links are provided to where more information can be found on individual tools and on related tools. Read more about the toolkit.

You can browse the toolkit in three different ways to identify which tool(s) may be suitable for your purpose: work through a number of guided questions, identify the right tool based on its characteristics or simply look at them in alphabetical order. The toolkit also provides links to additional, external resources, which provide information about other engagement tools and further guidance.
