At Buttle UK, we are taking steps to be more inclusive, accountable and transparent to the children, young people and families we support, as well as the professionals who work with them.
We recognise the importance and value of involving those who have experienced crisis and financial hardship in our work. This includes our learning and improvement, decision making and strategic planning. We call this co-production.
We are at the start of our co-production journey. Currently, we are setting up an Advisor Network of referrers and families, and a Youth Panel of young people who have received our grants, to help us develop our co-production approach.
Our long-term goal is to embed co-production into our culture and across all teams and strands of work at Buttle UK, to make our work as impactful as possible.
We’ll share updates on our progress here and on our blog.
