Co-production Wales Newsletter - special summer issue!

Sunshine, lollipops and hand-knitted bathers...Anyone out there remember the profound horrors of the hand-knitted bathing costume? I had one in beige and green stripes. No-one asked me if I wanted one in beige and green stripes - choice wasn’t a big thing in 1950s childhoods as I recall - it simply appeared one year and hung around until I thankfully grew out of it. The moment it came in contact with sand or water (rather prevalent at Barry…See More

We're on our way! Yesterday we launched our Lottery-funded Co-pro Network for Wales - aiming to create a Wales where everyone is valued as a contributor to the common good... Amazing people, radical ideas, inspiring stories, and the wonderful Edgar Cahn all the way from Washington to Welshpool. See the Storify of our launch event here.

Thanks Ruth. I'm afraid I don't know these people. I would be very interested to find out more about co-production in healthcare in Wales and about your work. Would you be available to meet at Cardiff uni some time in October?

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!

Hi Ruth - will do - best wishes Fiona
