"Working with you provided us with an experienced and knowledgeable critical friend to our project. Mike helped us to reach a consensus as a team around co-production (what it means to us, what are the potential barriers to working in this way and what we want to change about the ways in which we work with our communities). As a direct result of this involvement in our project, we have moved a number of elements of the way we work forward - rather than just talking about them!
We have established good working relationships with Town and Community Councils in the area and are looking to build on these in the immediate and long term future. The pilot project that you supported has received positive feedback from across the organisation and the learning from it has been taken forward as a catalyst to undertake additional and similar work."
