We are commissioned to work with local communities to coproduce better and braver solutions to local health and social care challenges.

We dream outside of what is, to what could be.

Our national network of collaborators uses authentic coproduction and radical disruptive innovation techniques to challenge systems that we believe are not working. By creating genuine and equal partnerships with senior management, boards, policy consultants, academics and front-line staff; we build hope.

To do this effectively, we use the arts, interactive technology and social media to facilitate democratic spaces for local people to collectively reimagine local health and social care outcomes. We believe in communication that resonates, be that spoken word poetry, stand-up comedy or tweeting - because most people don't speak NHS.

Picking out faults in the system is simple, the challenge is finding solutions that work.

This is where we shine.

Our members may be in full-time work or unemployed. They may be getting older, have dementia or have been recently diagnosed with a life-changing condition. They may have just got out of prison. But they know their local area and understand its issues. They live in the community and will have used services - or actively avoided them. These are the people we believe have the right skills and perspectives to help find the best solutions.
