    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    We would like to invite you to attend a workshop focusing on an introduction to co-production in relation to the Whole Family Wellbeing Fund.

    This event takes place from 16:00 - 18:00 on 09 February 2023 at Caledonia House, Pentland Park, Saltire Centre, Glenrothes, KY6 2AL.

    Participants in this workshop will get the chance to explore the concept of co-production further and how this relates to the planned whole systems review of children and families services in Fife.

    The National Principles for Holistic Whole Family Support states that children and families should be at the centre of service design and delivery.

    Co-production is about making sure that people who receive services are involved in the planning, design and delivery of that service or range of services. It goes beyond involving people in decision-making or getting their feedback and is about shifting the balance of power so that people and communities with real-life experience work together with professionals and decision-makers to help create meaningful change.

    All of this is much easier to say than it is to do, which is why we thought a workshop might help.

    Participants in this workshop will work together to explore:

    • Defining co-production as an alternative to more traditional engagement and why it matters
    • Key questions, concerns and barriers about how to ‘do’ co-production well
    • The behaviours and values that are central to successful co-production
    • How do we recompense people who contribute from the perspective of ‘experts by experience'
    • The different ways organisations could use the resources on offer to support co-production within the Whole Family Wellbeing Co-production & Systems Change paper

    One of the most amazing parts of co-production is where we learn together with staff and those who use services to build skills and insight alongside one another.

    With this in mind we STRONGLY encourage you to invite parents or young people who use your service, and who have the potential to be involved in future co-production work, to join you in attending this workshop.

    Spaces will be limited to one staff member per service user for each organisation.

    Please contact Mark Hutchinson (Children's Services Development Manager, FVA) at [email protected] for further information.
