Welcome! So what’s it all about then?

What it’s all about is the total transformation of our public services…

Co-production Wales (All in this Together) is a values-led social enterprise. We operate as a voluntary alliance of individuals and organisations with a shared mission: to build on the best of our traditions of cooperation and community to transform Wales into a society that places co-production principles at the heart of its public services, its communities, and the lives of its citizens. We don’t have any paid staff and we don’t have an office. What we do have is the help and support of hundreds of people – government ministers, academics, community members, public service professionals, carers and service recipients – who are working with us to achieve our collective goal.

Our aim is social justice, and the permanent shift of power from state to citizens. Nothing less.


Launch of the member-led Co-production Network for Wales!

For a Wales where everyone is valued as a contributor to the common good.

At some point over the past three years YOU helped to make this happen. You might have signed a petition, written a letter of support, persuaded a colleague, researched a report, commented on the proposal, attended an event, given a presentation, organised a workshop, bought us a cuppa, encouraged us or inspired us. Many of you simply got on with it and, against all the odds, made co-production a reality. The Co-production Network for Wales is the result. The Lottery are funding us – Cartrefi Cymru, Co-production Wales, WCVA – for three years. And it simply wouldn’t have happened without you. Heartfelt thanks from us all.

Sign up to the Network mailing list here.

As individuals we are relatively powerless. Collectively we are unstoppable. Please stay involved and work with us to transform our public services. Thank you!

An outline version of the bid is on our publications page.

  1. Congratulations on your Open Letter Initiative. We need to take advantage of as many leverage points as we can to ensure that the co-production message is heard and turned into practice. Co-production is part of that fundamental shift in thinking that we need to live healthy and more sustainable lives.


  2. Goof afternoon, I am looking to further my career as a Project Manager in NHS Wales embedding co-production into an NHS Trust. Could I ask you some quick questions that would help me understand where to look for info used for an interview presentation I have in less than a week. Do you have an email and/or any time to help me?


  3. I have carried out a supported experiment and used the concept of co production for my adult learners this year, i have given them one assessment criteria and let them led the sessions – in most cases they ensured the topic was covered extensively and I will be adapting this approach for suitable elements of the programme for the up coming academic year


  4. Hi Suzanne
    Great to hear of co-production happening in education – where are you working? Do let us know if you manage to extend the co-pro approach next year…and how your students respond.


  5. I am in Gower College Swansea and I plan to extend the com pro approach into other areas for study not only within health care but also in science and within social policy. With co production such a movement forward with the new Social Care and Well Being Act I feel that it is imperative to gain greater interaction from our students.
