A Toolkit for Co-Production in Community Planning (2021)
This Toolkit is for practitioners in Community Planning. It has been developed as part of Carnegie UK “Embedding Wellbeing in NI” Project which provided financial and in-kind support to three Community Planning Partnerships to implement a wellbeing approach in their practice.
The Project worked in-depth in three local authority areas: Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council; Derry City and Strabane District Council; and Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council. It provided the Community Planning Partnerships with support on co-production and shared leadership, which were identified as ways of working that are key to the success of the Community Planning process, improving wellbeing outcomes, and strengthening the ‘golden thread’ between the tiers of government.
Community Places provided a Programme of support on co-production to the three Partnerships and drew on the learning gained from delivering the Programme to develop the Toolkit. Readers may also find it helpful to refer to the Community Places Community Planning Toolkit.
