If we want the system to work for people, we need to hear and understand the experiences of those who get put through the system.
This Group’s mission is to make sure that everything is collaboratively developed with people with lived experience.
We explore creative ways of engaging people, creating opportunities, activities and environments for people to share their experiences and stories in a way that is comfortable and meaningful for them.
The aim is that engagement becomes an ongoing relationship, not just a one-off consultation or extraction. We want to make sure people feel valued, listened to, and that their input and involvement has had a positive impact.

Over the course of the York MCN Network, co-production and engagement have been increasingly discussed both at Network meetings, in working groups and across other strategic and operational activity.
