It’s time to walk the talk – making
co-production the way Scotland works

4th National Co-production Conference 2015
Tuesday 12th May 2015

Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow

You are invited to register your interest in attending and contributing to this year's national conference.

Across Scotland people and communities are continuing to work with local services to achieve positive change through co-production. This year’s 4th National Co-production Conference aims to help us bring it all together, learn from each other and plan for the future.

Once again the conference will be brimming over with activities, work sessions, training opportunities, discussions and debates.

How to register to attend

This is a free event, with everyone welcome. In previous years we have been oversubscribed so please register your interest early.

We are particularly keen for the conference to hear from groups of people with lived experience of co-production. We are happy to support the attendance of local or unfunded groups – get in touch to discuss.

Glasgow Homelessness Network event: Co-producing homeless services

Added by samjordan under General Chat

Tuesday 24th March 2015 10am-3pm, Adelaide’s, Bath Street, Glasgow

Over time, there’s been many changes in how services are designed and delivered – from something we did to people, then for people and now with people. The ideas behind coproduction build on this change.

This year’s SHIEN conference will explore what coproduction really means, what it might offer us – and whether it could transform how we tackle homelessness in Scotland.

Come along to:

  • Meet other people working and living with homelessness
  • Enjoy a great lunch and some musical entertainment
