Over the past two years, we have, collectively, helped to build an active and knowledgeable community of practice in Wales, internationally acknowledged and often world-leading.The result has been a slow but sure shift in the direction of transformative co-production, the first tentative steps towards a realignment of the relationship between state and citizens based on trust, on equal and reciprocal relationships. We have a potentially radical Social Services & Well-being Act, a National…See More

We believe that this could be achieved through the establishment of an independent, member-led Wales Co-production Network.So we intend to apply for Big Lottery funding to make this happen.If we get support from Welsh Government, WCVA, Participation Cymru and the CVCs, the Lottery will consider funding us on the basis of a sole solicited…See More

Hi Ruth,

I've been following you/this group from a distance from the beginning. Had to disappear for a year or two because our time bank development has been a bit much to handle--the kind of problem I (suppose I) am glad to have.

Thank you for the work you've done. This is impressive!
