The origin story

This all started back in 2012 as a voluntary endeavour by two women at a kitchen table. Along the way we carried out research, organised events, campaigned to influence legislation, and started delivering training and consultancy. We became a Big Lottery funded project (2016-2019), which enabled us to formally set up the Network and its infrastructure. Now we are an independent not-for-profit organisation; our legal name is The Co-production and Involvement Network for Wales Ltd. We support the community of practice through the Co-production Network for Wales, and we offer consultancy and training services through Co-production Lab Wales.

How we're funded now

As an independent organisation, we cover our running costs through organisational membership and e-learning courses fees. The surplus generated by consultancy and training services at Co-production Lab Wales also contributes to resourcing the Network's activities.

In addition, we receive National Lottery Community Fund project funding to work specifically with Public Services Boards (2021-2026), and Welsh Government Third Sector Resilience Fund (Phase 2) funding via the Wales Council for Voluntary Action as part of the Covid recovery scheme (2021-2022).

How we're governed

We are a social enterprise: a private company limited by guarantee, with not-for-profit principles written into our constitution. Our board of directors ensures that we are a legal, responsible, sustainable and ethical organisation. Our directors contribute their time on a voluntary basis and meet 6 times per year. We are pleased to count the Wales Council for Voluntary Action as a corporate director on our board.
