We’re launching the member-led Co-production Network for Wales!

[let trumpets sound / maidens swoon / lambs caper / hearts lift / joy be unbounded]
As you probably know, we (Co-pro Wales, WCVA, Cartrefi Cymru) have received Lottery funding to develop a Co-production Network for Wales. Our collective aim is to help transform our public services by embedding co-production as the primary approach to commissioning, design, delivery and evaluation in Wales. Our patrons are Edgar Cahn and Julian Tudor-Hart. Inspiration personified!

And at some point over the past three years YOU helped to make this happen.
You might have signed a petition, written a letter of support, persuaded a colleague, researched a report, commented on the proposal, attended an event, given a presentation, organised a workshop, bought us a cuppa, encouraged us or inspired us. Many of you simply got on with it and, against all the odds, made co-production a reality.

Open Letter Information

2nd Open Letter to the Assembly

HI all,

Eighteen months ago we sent an Open Letter to Welsh Government asking for co-production principles to be placed at the heart of our public services. This was signed by 256 organisations and individuals from the Wales co-pro community, and 25 letters of support were received from co-production experts from the UK, USA and Australia.

We have now sent a second letter please see the link below
