Co-Design

Co-design is vital to implementing the Bolton Locality Plan and supporting the Bolton CVS vision.  We believe a shared commitment, across services and sectors, is at the heart of change and making things better for individuals and communities.  Co-design provides a method of achieving these goals, together.

But, what is Co-design?

  • Co-design involves people coming together.
  • Those people have a vested interest in creating something new, which works better or achieves a desired outcome.
  • The people are all equally valued, involved and rewarded at each stage.
  • The outcome benefits everyone involved.
