Learning Disability Wales explores the potential of co-production

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 support services.

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.

Video

Co-production Wales (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.

Events

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 1161.

Articles

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 in this Together) at their website.

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