During this one-hour session Vicky will walk you through Stronger Together, a toolkit housing 7 years of collective co-production experience from Ageing Better, demonstrated through 12 distinct themes.
Co-production was embedded as the bedrock of the Ageing Better programme and all aspects including the design, delivery, governance and evaluation were co-created within the parameters of an authentic co-production approach. This approach became the legacy of the programme’s success and longevity, and the toolkit was subsequently co-created by all 14 programme areas, led by South Yorkshire Housing Association, as a rich, diverse and accessible resource.
The overall aim was for other projects, services and communities to tap in to and utilise this resource, drawing from its wide range of relatable stories, tools and guides which can be translated to meet the needs of a range of different audiences.
Understand the key values and principles of co-production
Know how to get the most out of the Stronger Together toolkit
And discover ways of incorporating the learning and resources within your own co-production journey, wherever you are at on that journey…
You will have an opportunity to view co-production from a lived experience, person centred, heart led perspective, and outline a framework that will enable you to inspire and engage others in the process, with a view to integrating co-production as an approach that has real value; as a way of working with people, moving away from the old doing to and doing for ways of connecting and communicating.
At the end of this session, you will have an option to dive deeper at a later date, partaking in a train the trainer session, enabling you to walk others through the toolkit and build on the “we are stronger together” paradigm shift within the health and care sector.
Before embarking on the session we will ask you to familiarise yourself with the toolkit and will provide you with a few reflective preparatory questions for you to ascertain where you are at and where you would like to get to; also sharing some examples from the toolkit of just how essential it is to incorporate lived experience when creating projects and services, to ensure that they are right for the people that they are intending to serve, including everyone that makes up the diverse mix of people within our communities.
