Background

The Scottish Co-production network was formed as an informal network in 2010, co-facilitated and chaired by Scottish Community Development Centre and NHS Tayside on a voluntary basis. It came into being as a result of contact established between the New Economics Foundation (nef) and NHS Tayside as part of their work around the Health Equity Strategy: Communities in Control and through the Meeting the Shared Challenge programme led by Scottish Community Development Centre.  

The network was response to the growing interest in co-production across several sectors in Scotland.
