This blog by Jennie Shrewsbury, Good Practice Mentors Programme and Co-production Lead at South Yorkshire Housing Association, was published to coincide with Co-production week 2024.

Jennie shares how at South Yorkshire Housing Association they believe co-production demands honesty about their efforts and limitations. Instead of diluting trust by confusing consultation with co-production, they focus on achievable steps to include people’s voices in our work.

This involves planning, capacity, and budgeting, often scarce resources. They prioritise core principles like Equality, Diversity, Reciprocity, and Accessibility to ensure meaningful involvement.
