Throughout the week

Person shaped support PSS

PSS are using National Co-production week to kick start a major piece of work around evaluating approaches to co-production across our diverse range of services. We’re doing some great work in this area and we want to do even better. Between 3 – 7 July they be engaging their teams and the people they support in activities. Their stories and experiences will help them to find out what is and isn’t working - and how they can improve co-production by trying new and different things. See PSS website.

Walsingham Support

Walsingham Support are setting up their own national co-production group. They’re also running a survey for those externally who are willing to share their co-production expertise and experiences.
