How co-production can improve the lives of individuals, develop and support communities, and ultimately create alternatives to traditional support services.
As part of our work to promote alternative methods of service
delivery Learning Disability Wales are exploring how co-production
can improve the lives of individuals, develop and support
communities, and ultimately create alternatives to traditional
Co-production is a way of working that includes individuals,
groups, communities and people who provide services. The
process includes everyone from start to finish, working together to
design better ways of doing things. Learning Disability Wales
are focussing on co-production with a series of events, articles and a new video.
(All in it together) facilitated a workshop at I Belong, our 2016
annual conference, which explored co-production. We have teamed up
with Co-production Wales again to produce a 10 minute video that
explains the five principles of co-production.
In partnership with Co-production Wales, we are holding four regional
seminars exploring what co-production is and how to use it to
improve your life, community and services. More information
can be found on our event page or by contacting Harriett on 029 2068
The current issue of Llais magazine includes three articles
looking at 'What does it
really mean?', 'Connecting
the community through partnership' and '
Redesigning floating support'.
You can find out more about the work of Co-production Wales (All

The video 5 Principles of
Co-production was funded by the Big Lottery Fund.
