A look at what’s happened so far…

Wales has taken to co-pro like a duck to water, like sheep to grass, and like me to a jam and cream scone. These are just a few of the signs of its enthusiastic take-up in the past 12 months.


WG Environment Matters Symposium: sustainability, co-production & collaboration

Communities Can Conference 2012: co-production, coaching and wellbeing

Assets for Health Symposium: co-production in the health sector

WCVA conference: I Matter, We Matter – co-production in action

All in this Together campaign network set up: over 450 people involved from  217 organisations, three events held:

  • Co-production, co-creation & public service delivery
  • Towards a Welsh co-production model for public service delivery
  • Co-producing resilient communities

Launch of Open Letter to the First Minister asking that co-pro principles are placed at the heart of Welsh public services. 130 signatures and rising…

And to come in the near future:

S. Wales Network Meeting 4: to be hosted by United Welsh Housing

Feels like we might just be on to a winner here!
