The Engagement Hub
The Engagement Hub is a team of engagement experts, available to APS agencies, who advise public servants about getting the public involved in their work. It would also deliver and coordinate some of the other Concepts to improve public participation.
What it might look like: The team hard at work at the Engagement Hub! The team would be physically located in an APS agency, and might be staffed with secondees from APS departments.
Why the contribution is important
Organisations that succeed in getting more public involvement in their work have a point in common: A Hub that builds capability and coordinates engagement work. The Engagement Hub would be a crucial lynchpin to any big improvements, and making all the other Concepts happen.

- How could we get the public involved in it, including in its development and governance
- How would you get funding and staff for it? How would you get buy-in? What would be its governance arrangements?
- New teams doing reform can sometimes get more work than they can handle, or subjected to unrealistic expectations. What are the first things the Hub should concentrate on? Then, how do you make it sustainable and enduring?
- And: Can you think of a catchy name for the hub?
