SIS works tirelessly to help and support migrant communities to participate and become involved in the wider community and society to benefit everyone and improve wellbeing. If people are engaged, then organisations, social groups and public service are more likely to achieve long-term and sustainable dialogue, outcomes and relationships. Our in-depth knowledge of our service users enables us to use strategies and processes that are contextualised and culturally sensitive. Outreach is undertaken in collaborative ways that people recognise and understand.
The Highlight of Community Engagement over the past few years have been the fabulous Annual BAME Health and Wellbeing Events.
SIS has a long history of working collaboratively with individuals, communities, commissioners and organisations to further our mission and values.
We have been consistently commended for this approach by Customer Service Excellence (CSE) which, since 2015, has endowed SIS with “compliance plus” for partnership work which is seen as having “demonstrable benefits for our customers” and “partners feel is providing extremely good value for money”
“Through working with a wide range of partners, SIS continue to benefit their service users. They remain ‘more than just an interpreting service’ and see partner working as a way for their service users to access a ‘complicated jigsaw’ of public services. More partners have been added to SIS’s ‘Tube Map’ to show service users the wide range of services available”
