Commissioning Involvement Group (CIG) – January 28th 2020

CIG meeting held on 28th January 2020

 Summary of meeting

The CIG discussions included:

Previously the CIG members had discussed the idea of running the CIG using the Principles of Co-Production. Before this could happen, all members needed to be clear of the principles, so members of the CIG subgroup – Co-Production Working Group planned and presented a Co-Production Awareness session as part of the CIG agenda, this included:

  • An Introduction – with some background about how the idea of Co-Production came about.
  • Mini debate – members were split into groups and given time to write down their thoughts about what Co-Production and what the most important aspects are.
  • Videos on Co-production – The group were shown 2 videos. One a Co-Production quiz and the other a video about the differences between Co-Production and Participation. Members discussed their content

Kath read through the Principles of Co-Production and how we use this to measure if we are doing Co-Production properly. The Principles were developed by National Endowment for Science Technology and Arts (NESTA) and are used nationally.
