The Co-pro Network recently took part in some training with All Wales People First ‘Building community connections (using co-production)’
All Wales People First have been investing in a high quality training programme, aimed at local Advisers and Advocacy Support or Project Workers around the country.
A whole series of themed workshops have been delivered and we were invited in to play our part. After using the ‘wedding planner’ exercise and hearing a host of examples of community building & co-production in action, the groups used the co-production exercise to focus on some shared projects they might co-work on. One of the most popular topics (based on a strong theme that’s been coming from their members over a number of years), was the idea of co-creating more opportunities for dating and making new friends.
