About

All across Scotland, people are experimenting with putting trust and shared decision making at the heart of public service. We are learning how sharing power can create better outcomes for people and places

Sometimes, professionals use terms like ‘asset-based approaches’, ‘social innovation’, and ‘co-production’ to describe this shift to working with people, rather than doing stuff to or for us.

This site has been set up as a home to an initiative called ‘100 Stories’, which grew out of an event in November 2016 – part of ‘Coproduction Week’ hosted by Scottish Coproduction Network. A report from that event is available here.

In short, ‘100 Stories’ aims to enable people from across Scotland’s diverse coproduction movement to share stories about (evidence) the impact we are making…

At the moment (early 2017) we are asking two questions of ourselves:

    1. ‘How can we generate 100 powerful, well evidenced and diverse stories about making coproduction a reality in Scotland today’?
      and
    2. ‘How can we share these in ways that enable the public, media and politicians to better support, enable and champion our movement to grow?’
