Formed as an informal network in 2010 in collaboration with New Economics Foundation through Meeting the Shared Challenge. As interest in co-pro begins to take root in Scotland – policy context and response to e.g. Chrisitie Commission – looking for responses which look at how we approach public service design and delivery differently. Chaired jointly by NHS Tayside and Scottish Community Development Centre (SCDC) on a voluntary basis until nowApril 2012 – support recieved by Scottish Government Joint Improvement Team to be formally developed in 2012-13 via NHS Tayside and SCDC
It aims to beA locus for building on existing co-production activityA space for learning, debate and development of ideas and approaches around co-productionA forum for practice exchange, and sharing of information and resourcesAnd to supporting dialogue around emerging policy on delivering public services differently and advancing co-production approaches in Scotland
Many varied definitions of co-production and it is being used across sectors to refer to public service design and delivery. A useful working definition used by nef states that….So the emphasis is on power shift from service provider to an equal relationship between them and communities – where the assets, knowledge, resources and experiences of the communities are integral to developing approaches to achieving better outcomes….
The network is being supported by a part-time coordinator – the key activities of my role will be to organise:Network meetings – which will allow practice exchange, as above a place for ideas and information exchange – usually with someone form the network invited to speak or share a piece of workNational events/seminars – plan to have 1 or 2 in either conference or seminar format with demonstrations of co-production in practice and learning opportunitiesA series of learning events -invited practitioners talking on co-production in relation to a theme, e.g. older people, mental health, share practicePart of my role will be to support the development of local networks where there is demand – and over the next few months I will be contacting network members to find out about who is interested in identifying and developing networks locally.Developing a website and online space as a depository of resources, links – this should include a forum for members and will have a newsletter function etc. Promote the network across sectors and linking with relevant networks, consultations etc.
I will bring a sheet for contact details and email people with details of how to sign up.Emphasis on contributing TO the network – what can you offer?
