Nigel Rose is again offering a series of workshops that might benefit voluntary youth organisations, including the following:

Co-production, 16th November, all day, charge
This workshop will:

· Understand how to put co-production into practice, and the benefits and disadvantages of co-production as an approach, through developing a case-study.
· Give an overview of how and why the term co-production has become popular in health and social care planning and what that has meant in practice
Radical Approaches to Commissioning Public Services, 29th November, afternoon, free
This workshop will cover:
· Mutualisation: How organisations can adopt structures and processes that enable them to create mutually beneficial relationships with staff, communities, and other organisations.
· People Powered Services: How organisations can systematically ensure that a holistic understanding of the experience of the people they provide services for is at the heart of their services.
· Community Resilience: How services can be commissioned in a way that uses the assets of a community and contributes to development of stronger and healthier communities
Community Development, 7th December, all day, charge
Community development approaches are once more becoming popular as public authorities seek to get more from less through encouraging communities to take on new and greater responsibilities. National Government also sees community action as the answer to many problems.
This workshop will, through a combination of presentation, discussion and exercises help participants to understand:
* The purpose of community development and what it is (and isn’t)
* A range of approaches to community development including ABCD (Asset-Based Community Development) and Community Organising
* The role and skills of a community development worker
* What an organisational approach to community development is
* The benefits and risks of community development approaches
October – December training programme now available. Visit: http://bit.ly/2dku8FQ for further details
