Co-Production and Involvement

At Fulfilling Lives our aim is to change systems and services by co-producing with people who have experienced them.

Co-production is a way of working that offers an alternative to the traditional, hierarchical top-down flow of power.

It involves sharing control with those using a service, and ensures they have equal influence over the design, delivery and commissioning of any service which affects them.

We think that co-production is meaningful when people with lived experience are valued by organisations as equal partners, can share power, skills and experience and have influence over decisions made.

For reflective pieces around co-production take a look at our blog -

Your experience counts, and your voice can help implement positive changes.

I'm glad I decided to become a volunteer. I am now in paid work as a Project Consultant. It's the best decision I have ever made.
