Community resilience and co-production project

 Community resilience and co-production project


· Are you working to change the way services in Scotland are designed and delivered?


· Do you see your project as working with people rather than simply processing them?


The Scottish Community Development Centre (SCDC) is conducting a short piece of research, funded by NHS Education for Scotland (NES), to identify work in Scotland revolving around community resilience and co-production.


We know that there is some real groundbreaking work going on in all sectors in Scotland, and it would be valuable to share more widely and learn from this.


We would like to conduct short telephone interviews with staff or volunteers of any projects who see themselves as doing work related to this area. Projects will be asked to provide a few basic details about their work and we expect to invite some of them to an informal event in March which will allow project staff and volunteers, along with other stakeholders, to share experience and contribute to the development of recommendations to NES regarding community resilience and co-production.


This action research will provide a great opportunity to take stock and share information with likeminded projects and to contribute towards raising awareness of coproduction and its relationship with community resilience.


This will help to inform and develop further NES activity to support the development of a new kind of public services, designed and delivered through equal partnership between service users and professionals.
