About this Event

Now, more than ever, co-production plays a key part in the way that we work and the success in our bid writing. But getting services users to participate or involved is often a challenge.

The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) has now set the standard for when it comes to accessing their funds. They now require co-production to be part of any successful bids (Next Steps Accommodation Programme).

As well as MHCLG, Homes England and the GLA, coproduction should be carried out in collaboration with relevant stakeholders and partners, including service users, support providers, health and social care commissioners, local voluntary organisations, probation services, registered providers and landlords (para 53, our emphasis).” (Next Steps Accommodation Programme Guidance)

To help Local Authorities, services and partnerships with their co-production and to ensure that voices can be heard we at Expert Link have put together a FREE 1 hour webinar.
