What is

Our introductory training webinar to help you stop buzzing and start championing!


Does co-production seem confusing?

Do you feel overwhelmed by process, detail and the enormity of making co-production happen?

Are you frustrated that you’re organisation does not buy-in to co-production, or simply sees it as a buzzword?

Our challenge

Many of us recognise that by drawing on the talents and skills across the whole of an organisation we can improve outcomes. Including our passion to ensure that those benefiting from the service are included.In the world of co-production, the enormity of this task can feel overwhelming.

We can get bogged down in definitions, details and processes, and feel frustrated that people don’t share our passion for its value.

We can become exasperated that co-production has become a buzzword, a tick-box exercise, a tokenistic gesture.

How we can help

But what if it wasn’t so overwhelming? What if the argument for co-production was as simple as 1-2-3? What if you felt confident that you could apply the basic principles of co-production in all your work?

At Expert Link we have over 10 years’ experience in co-production - working at individual, community, organisational, local and national government levels.

We have trained hundreds of people in the art of co-production, including individuals accessing services, frontline workers, middle management, members of senior leadership teams, commissioners, local authority leads and national Government officials.
