To put it simply, we work with the people we support to build an organisation and services that work for them.
Some of the people we support sit on our Board of Trustees.
Sean, one of our Member (service user) Trustees, told us:
“I feel really involved. I wouldn’t be a trustee if I thought it was tokenistic.”
It isn’t just at national level that we do coproduction. Each local service is coproduced with the people it supports. This includes sharing skills, leading sessions at hubs and deciding on guest speakers.
