A network for co-production practitioners
I'm thinking about the merit of developing a higher/ further education module focused on CP that could be offered to a diverse range of people (practitioners, service users, carers, public, politicians et al) to help embed CP as a basic requirement of professional, democratic and public practice; delivered by a diverse group of people with the insight, expertise and integrity to inspire take up of CP as a mainstream practice accessible to all.
I'm keen not to create barriers by over-professionalising CP, encourage the professionals to come out and play a more equitable game so delivery might best be carried out by local groups to create a revenue stream for both community groups and HE/ FE operating on principles of social justice.
Equally keen for any resource created in this context to be open source/ collective commons and ideally sidestep all that IP nonsense (naive optimism strikes again!)
Would there be demand for a product of this nature from LAs, NHS et al to both equip their staff/ organisation to embrace CP and forge better relationships with their public?
Lots of half-baked thoughts spinning about in my head about this idea so I'll stop there for now and ask for your feedback and participation if you think the topic has some legs and you'd like to join the conversation.
