AitT5. Co-producing resilient communities: building confidence and capacity

11 November, 12.30-4.30, Park Inn by Radisson, Cardiff. Booking & more details via Eventbrite.

A stellar line-up and what might be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear from Australian co-pro innovator Eddie Bartnik, Mental Health Commissioner for Western Australia and former Director-General of Communities. Sharing the stage with Eddie is the awesome David Robinson, director of the Early Action Task Force, founder of Community Links, and author of ‘Unconditional Leadership’ and the million-selling ‘Change the world for a fiver’. We’ll also have presentations from the frontline – communities and organisations who are at the forefront of the co-production revolution in Wales.


Eddie Bartnik: Power to the People & David Robinson: The Deciding Time

and from the frontline…Co-production models: three presentations on Capacity, Confidence, and Community

  • Local Area Co-ordination / Monmouth Council: Creating inclusive communities. Local Authorities and communities working in partnership to transform services, relationships and presumptions. The LAC co-pro model they are using is  also changing lives in Scotland, England, and Australia.
  • RCTInterlink & Spectacle Theatre: Community Voices. An ABCD approach to co-pro (asset-based community development) involving 8 pilot projects and the wonderful Spectacle Theatre. All intended to ensure that peoples’ voices are heard loud and clear.
  • Spice: Time for Change. Using time-banks to deliver co-production – across communities, schools, housing associations and within social care. Compelling evidence from individuals and organisations.

followed by: Keynote Q&A

Huge thanks to Wales Public Services 2025 & Cardiff Council for their support…it couldn’t happen without them!
