Co-what? An Introduction to Co-production and How we Do it Together
September 29 | 09:30 - 16:30$66 – $220
About the workshop:
Increasingly co-production is talked about as a mechanism for engaging with people with lived experience of mental distress, social issues or injustice and involving them in decisions that affect their lives. When people first grapple with co-production there can be a lot of what-if’s, questions on what it is, how to do it well and wondering if it is appropriate for their circumstance and why.
This session will provide people with an understanding of the value and values of co-production, reflection on each person’s role within the context of co-production as well as skills to participate in authentic co-production processes.
Who the workshop is for:
Co-What: An Introduction to Co-Production and How we Do it Together is for anyone who has involvement or interest in co-production activities with people with lived experience of mental distress, social issues or injustice. People in service delivery, peer work, clinical roles, community development, engagement and policy roles, as well as ‘consumers’ and ‘carers’ who may or may not be in a paid or representative lived experience role, are welcome to attend.
People who use their lived experience in drug and alcohol or homelessness settings, and other areas, will be able to apply the learning’s from this session to their own experiences and areas of action.
Participants do not need to have previous involvement with co-design or co-production project’s.
