Social marketing typically isn't associated with co-pro (maybe it's the 'marketing' bit that puts people off!).

There are many parallels between the co-production principles and ways of working with what people aspire to achieve through action-research.
I have been looking through the co-production literature for a…Continue

Nick Andrews provided the venue, cups and water/juice; Rick Wilson from Community Lives Consortium gave us a provocative presentation on developing social as opposed to anti-social services (taken from his PhD in progress - it's going to be a great read!) and…Continue
