#TAPLectures

At The Advocacy Project, we invite renowned national experts to give talks on topical issues. The lectures are open to our staff, service users and partners – and anyone who’s interested and would like to join us. The session includes time for questions and discussion.

Effective co-production: what are the key skills and approaches needed? With Pete Fleischmann

Co-production is about being the change that you want to see. This means changing habitual ways of working, understanding how groups work, being aware of differences in power, tolerating uncertainty and welcoming challenge.

Understanding the principles of co-production is the easy bit. Actually putting co-production into practice is the difficult part. We tend to talk a lot about the definitions and values of co-production but not much about how to actually make it work in practice.

In this talk Pete Fleischmann (Head of Co-production, Social Care Institute for Excellence) will give an introduction to the skills and attitudes needed by professionals and citizens to make co-production a reality.

Pete Fleischmann joined SCIE in 2004. He is currently responsible for SCIE’s co-production network, national co-production week, the production of good practice materials about inclusion and co-production and co-production training.

In the 1990s Pete helped set up Brent Mental Health User Group (BUG) and Loud and Clear Mental Health Advocacy. He then worked as a freelance consultant specialising in advocacy, user involvement and participation. Clients included Institute of Psychiatry, Revolving Doors Agency, Crisis, Thames Reach Bondway, Pentonville Prison, Soros Foundation and the Hamlet Trust.

Pete has experience of using psychiatric services.
