Co-production in Wales – Carmarthenshire Back

Location: Carmarthenshire

Organisation: Learning Disability Wales and The Wales Co-Production Network

Time: 10:00am to 3:30pm

Learning Disability Wales and The Wales Co-Production Network are holding a one day seminar looking at co-production, what is it and how to use it in your life, community and to develop improved services. 

Co-production means finding out what really matters to people and what they are passionate about and then helping them to do something about that passion which can lead to alternative routes to support and independence.

Co-production is a way of people, individuals, groups and communities, working with the people who provide services and together, from start to finish, they design better ways of doing things. This means that you get something back for what you put in – an exchange of skills and relationships.

This conference will give an account of what co-production is and why it is a good way of doing things. The Seminar will show you examples of co-production in action, with particular focus on:

  • Values and principles behind co-production
  • Why co-production? Links to Person Centred Planning.
  • Levels of co-production – the difference it can make if used really well.

The day will also include a series of practical exercises that help you to co-produce and some examples of co-production in action.

If you are unable to make this date we are also holding seminars at 3 other locations around Wales on the following dates:

  • 8 March 2017 in Caernarfon (10.00am – 3.30pm)
  • 9 March 2017 in Newtown (10.00am – 3.30pm)
