Lambeth Together in partnership with the Ideas Alliance would like to warmly invite you to join our coproduction Communities of Practice (CoP).
Coproduction is ‘A way of working that involves people who use health and care services, carers and community in equal partnerships; and which engages groups of people at the earliest stages of service design, development and evaluation’.
What is Lambeth Together? Lambeth Together is made up of different organisations who are working across health and social care in Lambeth. It is a way of working together that is more joined up, focused on people and places, and brings health and social care services together as one system.
Join a community of practice
This opportunity is open to people who live or work in Lambeth and who are interested in learning new skills. You will be involved in helping shape the model of service design and development for neighbourhood care and health and wellbeing initiatives.
What are communities of practice?
Communities of Practice are forums for local people and organisations across the health, community, voluntary and social care sector to come together to develop close, trusting relationships that enable collaboration and co-design.
They are designed to deepen participants’ understanding of coproduction, strength based working and collaboration and to test out the approach over three facilitated workshops.
Why Communities of Practice?
Communities of Practice will develop coproduction champions who will work both within their organisations and across the system to inform and support the development of health and wellbeing in neighbourhoods and to embed a culture of coproduction.
We also ask for your ongoing engagement in coproduction and codesign in the new year as we work towards refining approaches into:
