Help us shape the Network - Take our survey!

Added by samjordan under General Chat

Dear colleagues,

The Scottish Co-production Network now has over 500 members and our network has been active for over 4 years. We’re really interested in knowing a bit more about our membership to help us shape network activities in the future. Accordingly, we’ve developed a survey to help us gain a better of understanding of who are members are, what work they’re doing and how they think the Network is useful to them.

Take the survey here

The survey should only take about 10 minutes maximum and we ask that you please answer as many questions as possible. Feedback from surveys such as this really does help us in planning the future direction and activity for the Network and gives us a chance to demonstrate the vast breadth of interest in co-production from across the country. The survey will close on Friday 28th March 2014.

Along with our survey, we’re moving closer to the 3rd National Co-production Conference and we’re pulling together the details of the day. We’ve now nearly finalised the event workshops and have made special measures to ensure we can squeeze in as many as possible.  We’ll release more details soon and we think it’s going to be a great event – so don’t forget to register!

We’d like to thank you for taking a moment to contribute to the survey, registering for the conference and helping us shape the Network!

Kind regards,
