Co-production in the UK

Co-production with people who access our services and who have lived experience of an issue is a priority for the British Red Cross. We use it when we design, deliver and evaluate our services in the UK.

These resources show how specific co-production projects have promoted greater accountability to the communities we serve and have been strengthened by the contributions of people with relevant lived experience.

By making them available, we hope to encourage the ongoing exchange of best practices across National Societies.
