Co-Production Collective Allies Group: April Meeting Notes

June 17, 2022

On 27 April 2022, Co-Production Collective's Allies Group met once more to discuss key areas of our work. We're sharing the minutes so you can catch-up with what was discussed.

The Allies Group act as Co-Production Collective's advisors and sounding board, bringing their different experiences and expertise to guide our development. We meet 3-4 times a year and they support us to make connections, identify opportunities to raise awareness of our work, and help us ensure our future sustainability.

For an introduction to each member of the group and for more information about how the group was formed and our plans for it going forward, have a read of our previous blog. To find out what the group discussed at its previous meeting in January 2022, take a look at the previous meeting notes.

The most recent meeting on 27 April 2022 was a chance for Lizzie and Niccola to update the Allies Group members on our recent work and discuss items including:

  • an update on our funding situation – as our main funding sources comes to an end and we consider which routes to take to best secure a sustainable future for the Collective

  • an update on our staffing situation – and discussion on how best to ensure we secure and support the Collective’s most valuable asset – our people (including everyone in our community).

  • a discussion of the future structure and functioning of the Allies Group itself – how to ensure the group reflects both our core values and the diversity of the communities which we represent. And how to enable the Allies Group to evolve to meet the needs of the Collective over time.
