About the PB Charter

As each PB process is unique, the purpose of the Charter is to offer guiding points to support you to plot and navigate your own PB course.

The Charter has been developed to:

  • ensure local communities are at the heart of every PB process
  • highlight the features of what ‘good’ PB looks like
  • provide clarity on what to expect of a PB process
  • support the planning and design of quality PB processes
  • support the reflection on and improvement of PB practice

Who is the PB Charter for?

The Charter is for anyone who is planning, designing, supporting or taking part in a PB process.

How was the PB Charter developed?
