Who can join the National Co-production Group?

Membership of the National Co-production Advisory Group has been revised to make sure we represent a wide range of perspectives.

Members are building on the work they have already achieved in co-producing the Think Local Act Personal (TLAP) Partnership's work programme, in particular Making it Real, while now involving more people who use services and carers.

In 2014 we welcomed a further seven core members to the group. Read the members' profiles to find out who they are and what they do.

National Co-production Advisory Group membership

  • Core group: 16 to 18 people

A core group member is the first point of contact for co-production tasks and will agree to make a large time commitment to the advisory group. If a core group vacancy arises, we will recruit new members via an application process. Information on vacancies will be advertised in this section.

  • Flexible group: 20 people

A flexible group member agrees to make a time commitment to the advisory group, but with the understanding that other commitments may make it difficult to attend all scheduled meetings.

  • Email group

Email group members will register their details with TLAP and receive newsletters and information. Watch this space: Details of how to join the email group will be posted here in the next few months.

  • Seldom heard groups

We regularly commission people who use services (members of the advisory group or partner organisations) to set and facilitate up to three seldom heard group discussion programmes per year, with a key topic for each discussion.
