Part 1. Understanding co-production



Download Part 1 as a pdf

There are a few key concepts that contribute to a rounded understanding of co-production:

  • The definition and the 5 values that underpin the approach;
  • where co-production sits along the spectrum of engagement approaches;
  • when co-production is the most relevant approach (to address complex challenges).

    In this section we share the general framework of co-production, and you will find case studies in Part 2.

If you have 10 minutes, check out these summary factsheets.

If you have 30 minutes, read through this essay which is based on a conversation with Noreen Blanluet from the Co-production Network for Wales, and covers the four topics above.
