The term co-production refers to a way of working that combines our mutual strengths and capacities so that we can work together on an equal basis to achieve positive change.

It is about breaking down the organisational and invisible barriers between people who use services, people who provide services, and people who design services. It emphasises doing things with people rather than doing things to people or for people.

Co-production at Making Space is an intentional act and starts from the principle that everybody has valuable skills, knowledge and experience to offer.
