Welsh - Scottish Learning Exchange, 6 December 2012

On 6th December, the Scottish Co-production Network meeting was held in Edinburgh in order to link up with a group of Welsh delegates who were visiting the capital as part of a Co-production Study Visit with the Joint Improvement Team. The delegates represented a range of organisations and the Welsh Assembly and were keen to hear from the Scottish network about co-production activity in Scotland. Equally, network members heard a range of approaches and examples from the Welsh group, and meet new network members.

To learn more, you can link up with participants on the day in the Members Area. Some links and summaries are provided below, but don't hesitate to get in touch if you would like to find out more about how to get in touch with our Welsh colleagues.
