New in 2019 - Project Springboard builds on the the work of the Co-production Project Planner.
Co-production is a process that creates change. It is a way of working with, rather than doing to, people and communities to achieve better outcomes.
A co-production project sees people who access support as assets and builds on people’s existing capabilities. In addition, it breaks down the barriers between people who use services and professionals. Co-production projects are planned, developed and delivered by a group of people who have different backgrounds and interests.
The outputs of a co-production process can be huge, such as services, processes and pathways, or small, such as a community hall’s furniture, a poster, a blog page. Done well, the co-production process can support organisations and individuals become agents for change.
This free resource focuses on putting ideas into action. You don’t need to be an expert in co-production prior to planning a project. Work through the guide and see how you get on.
The resource comprises:
- project planning workbook to take you from initial ideas to running co-production workshops
- guide to planning co-production projects
- suite of Iriss facilitation tools
We hope you enjoy using the resource. Download the tool in three parts from this page.
Project Springboard builds on the work of the Co-production Project Planner which we released early 2018. It gives you bite-sized chunks of information on what to think about when in the initial stages of a project.
You don’t need to be an expert in co-production prior to planning a project. Work through the tool and see how you get on.
The tool covers the following:
- Project springboard- clarifying your idea, exploring power dynamics and thinking about timescales
- Asset bank- what resources do you already have and what else do you need to find to complete your project?
- Team builder- who do you need in your co-production team and how will you get them together?
- Workshops that work- thinking through your co-production sessions to make sure you get the most out of them
