Co-production helps us to improve and innovate, to amplify the voices of the people we work with, and to design effective services, opportunities and support.

This week – for SCIE’s Co-production Week – we’ll be sharing more about how and why we value co-production at South Yorkshire Housing Association. We’ll tell you more about what we’ve learned, our work and partnerships, and resources and training you can explore.

Stronger together

We’ve worked with Ageing Better partners to create a free co-production toolkit. If you’re involving people in the design of services that impact them and their communities, or would like to explore how to get started, then the toolkit is for you – and we’re launching a new and improved version this week!

The National Lottery Community Fund’s Good Practice Mentor project is also supporting us to work with organisations to get the most out of the toolkit. If you’d like guidance and help to use our free tools and resources, please get in touch.

Growing communities 

We’ve worked with brilliant local people to find out what’s important to them, learn more about their skills and experiences, and to create effective services and support.

Throughout the week, we’ll share more about some of the projects we’re working on – including designing lovely green spaces and funding great ideas in Rotherham, and working with Crisis to develop a new Co-production and Peer Support service in Sheffield. We’ll also share more about how our customers are leading on co-evaluating, co-designing and co-delivering our Annual Health Check – our review of how we’re doing on meeting our Customer Promises.

Resources, training and support

You can find out more about our learning and experiences in our free co-production resources and tools, and our webinar series (we’ll be revealing more about this week!) If you’re new to co-production, or want to improve how you work with and listen to your customers and partners, we’ll also be sharing more about our customisable training and workshops.
