Our Community Engagement and Involvement (CEI) is grounded in collective values of mutual trust, inclusion and equity which have nurtured relationships with our stakeholders over the past 7 years.
Our stakeholders include healthcare workers, families, communities, non-governmental organisations, academics, software developers and policy makers (Malawi, Zimbabwe, UK).
Key CEI activities:
Funded by a Wellcome Trust Enrichment award and with our partners ArtGlo, the UCL Co-Production Collective, PACHI and BRTI, we are carrying out a series of activities including:
Quarterly training led by UCL Co-Production Collective to develop skills, values and principles in co-production.
Participatory arts initiatives led by ArtGlo to empower parents/carers of newborns to surface their stories of healthcare use.
Opportunities for families/communities to engage with our team, policy makers and healthcare professionals to co-produce family centred models of care.
