Published resources are no longer available on this site. The Involvement Exchange has also closed, but the LINks Exchange will continue to operate as normal.

What is the LINks exchange?

The LINks exchange (LX) is a web resource to help support Local Involvement Networks (LINks) talk to one another and share best practice. Funded by the Department of Health, the LX enables members to access LINks programme information and guidance, share knowledge and experience, and discuss issues with others implementing LINks.

How the LINks exchange works

The LX provides a webspace for those involved in LINks to discuss issues. We hope members will benefit from the information and advice generated, and cascade it through their networks at

For this to happen, we need LINks exchange members to participate fully. We hope members will:

  • share their best practice
  • join in forum discussions
  • comment on content
  • build relationships with others.
