Co-Production Week

Co-Production Week runs from 4th-9th July 2022.

Co-production is about working in equal partnership with the people using our services, their carers, families and other organisations.

Below, our new Health & Wellbeing manager Lesley talks about our recent amazing collaborations as part of our Healthy Living Project:

“People in Action members recently completed a pilot project with One You Leeds and Active Leeds to make a universal weight management course more accessible for people with a learning disability.

The pilot programme was a great success, with members being able to achieve important lifestyle changes.

It highlighted that there are specific health messages and lifestyle needs which need greater attention in the course design, as well as in making the activities themselves fully accessible.

Building on that experience and feedback from participants we have now started some co-production workshops to give members a voice in deciding the basic course content, key messages and intended outcomes, as well as designing the session format and activities to support that learning.

They will be running until the end of the year. Our hope is that co-production will make this relevant, relatable and inspiring for future participants.”
