We led a half day workshop with a group of people from the Penderels Trust, Flintshire and Wrexham Social Services. It was designed as a learning and information gathering event, using visual techniques to share and capture the information in the room.

1. Introduction to Co-Production

Pam Luckock presented her co-production story, explaining what co-production is and how it can be used, and how time-banking relates to it. Fran created visual minutes while she spoke.
