Tomorrow we send the Open Letter to the Welsh Government asking that co-pro principles are placed at the heart of our public services. 256 signatures from organisations and individuals in Wales, and 25 supporting statements from USA, Canada, Australia and UK. Makes for a cheering and revolutionary read. Links to everything are on the All in this Together website and the Co-production Practitioners Network.

The Wales Alliance for Citizen Directed Support has been working with WCVA and a number of national Alliances on a campaign called I Matter We Matter.
This campaign is intended to put the views of citizens at the heart of the Welsh Governments framework for Outcomes.
People from across Wales were asked the same two questions:
- What things are important to you in your life?
- What helps you to do these things?
We got 2753 answers to these questions. On the 27th February 53 volunteers from across Wales came together to look at these answers and to create a set of We Matter declarations which represents the things that we all think are important for us to live a successful life.
You can see a video about the work that they did that day here
You can read the draft We Matter declarations here
The people who attended the Combine workshop want to present the We Matter declarations to representatives of the Welsh Assembly. They also want to be clear how the Assembly intend to use Outcomes to give people much more control over the supports that they use.

As you may know, we are collecting signatures for an Open Letter to the First Minister asking that co-production principles are placed at the heart of public services in Wales. The deadline is 28 March.Health Minister Mark Drakeford is committed to ensuring that our voices are heard at Cabinet level. This is a real opportunity to transform our public services.
Hope you have already signed up? If not, please do – and then pass it on to friends, family and colleagues – to anyone who supports co-pro principles of equality, reciprocity, and strengths-based working.
