The Welsh Government took a very positive move last year by launching the Framework for Action on Independent Living and that was a first step on a long journey towards making social inclusion and equality a reality for people with disabilities in Wales. But how will it happen? I believe it’s going to take organisations working together in a collective way to play on each other’s strengths.

NEF is working with youth service commissioners in Lambeth and Cornwall councils to transform the way that youth services are designed, commissioned and delivered. The approach we have developed with the commissioning teams is focussed on three distinct concepts, all critical to NEF’s work over the past decade: co-production; well-being; and social, environmental and economic outcomes.…Continue

I'll produce a full write-up of today's superb Co-production Implementation Group meeting asap but just had to pass on the introductory remarks of our remarkable CMO Ruth Hussey on co-production: "People say 'it's partnership working - we're doing it already'. We're not doing it already. This is about power."
With people like that on our side we might just succeed in transforming our public services. Time for a celebratory glass of something!

People might be interested in this forthcoming event.............
Time banking has made a more visible appearance in policy documents since 2010, yet its development and application has been built around two contradictory sets of values. On the one hand, it offers a means by which self-help, within a neo-liberal agenda can be fostered as part of the scaling back of the welfare state. On the other, it offers the hope of salvation for society beleaguered by global neo-liberal forces by…Continue
