Co-designing support

How we are harnessing workforce expertise to improve the experiences of black and ethnic minority families

At Iriss, we’ve been partnered with Passion4Fusion for nearly six months, working on the creation of a toolkit to equip the social care workforce with the understanding they need to best support black and ethnic minority families. Working with predominantly African diaspora in Edinburgh and the Lothians, this is an area that P4F know inside and out.

(Social) service design: the good, the bad and the ugly

1 Feb 2019

As part of the Fire Starter Festival 2019 we're running a workshop on service design. 

We are curious about how people interpret their roles within a project or design process, and how this impacts on their approach to design. What does it mean to wear your designer hat? How does this impact on power dynamics and inclusion? How do we embrace our own strengths and skills in a co-production process?

This workshop will cover:

Connecting Voices

Helping young people stay in care for longer and to equip them with the skills needed to make the transition into independent living. 

Co-production Project Planner

A resource to support co-production projects happen effectively

Contains a project planning workbook, a guide to planning co-production projects and a suite of Iriss facilitation tools.
