System Conveners are an emerging group of changemakers whose roles are designed to bring people together across sector, organisational and community boundaries, enabling people to share learning across those boundaries and to create positive change in how systems like public services operate. Rather than concentrating on individual services or organisations, the focus is on changing systems, building connections, and being led by people who use services, as well as those who are currently let down or excluded from them.

The New System Alliance, working with Hackney Borough Council and NHS England/the Health Foundation’s Q Community, surveyed people to find out if the Systems Conveners we are aware of are part of an emerging field. We had over 80 responses, the overwhelming majority identifying themselves as Systems Conveners in some way. We are happy to share our briefing – System Convening – what you told us, summarising what was shared about the role, their learning and what they need to do their jobs well.
