Our services

We work with organisations and groups to help build change that involves all the people affected. We make collaborative improvement practical, achievable and affordable – creating lasting change for the better, based on what really matters to people.

Our collective skills and experience are rooted in co-production and other ways of working that overlap with, contribute to, or enhance it:

  • strengths-based working
  • appreciative enquiry
  • co-design
  • inclusive practice

We help you find your own way towards co-production by creating a safe and positive environment, helping you work out where to start, giving you the tools to reflect and grow together, and supporting you to explore what’s possible in your context and find the answers that work for you.

We’ll build a project plan with you based on your ambitions and challenges and our knowledge and experience, including options tailored to meet the widest range of contexts and budgets.

Although every project is different, there are some common features and a loosely defined process for working with us – as well as a wide range of benefits.

Our services include:

to give you the skills and tools to integrate collaborative methods into your working processes

to help you collaborate openly and effectively

Strategy development
to help you develop strategic plans through co-design workshops and activities

Research, analysis and evaluation
to listen to people, and report back to decision-makers
