I'm working on a co-production project in Monmouthshire which aims to involve families, young people and professionals in co-producing plans for the future and exploring the potential for setting up a social cooperative which can support this co-production work. I'm keen to hear from anyone who is doing this kind of work or has been involved in setting up a similar organisation.

Hello and welcome to the co-production practitioners network Mike, thanks for joining us!
The practitioners network is supported by nef but all content is developed by members, for members. There's over 700 of us now from a wide range of backgrounds. To make the most of this fantastic resource, and in the spirit of co-production, do give others the chance to get involved by asking them to help you or sharing your skills with others.
Some of the following areas are good starting points;
Network groups – join your regional group for face to face and online contacts close to home. I'm glad you've found a couple of networks to link in with.
Resources and Videos bring co-production to life - add your own and view others.
The Blog carries the latest news, debate and opportunities for co-production practitioners. See what’s going on, add in your own comments or start a new thread.
It would really help to know how you heard about the network and what motivated you to join. Please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, please share the details of the network with colleagues or contacts you think would be interested.
nef is currently working with commissioners in Lambeth and Cornwall to support them to increase levels of co-production in services for young people. I'm sure they would be really interested to hear more about the work you are doing. Perhaps we could arrange a skype conversation (I'm based in Toronto, Canada at the moment) so that I could hear more about your work?
