Hi all,
As part of Scope’s commitment to making the community a supportive, friendly and enjoyable place, the community team want to make sure that you have an influence in its development and progression.

We want to gauge interest in a group we’re calling the “Community Co-production Group”. Members of this group will actively engage with the community team and offer input on decisions that impact the community’s future.

Activities would include:
  • representing our members' interests 
  • participating in workshops, meetings and on-community discussions
  • providing feedback or suggestions on community-related matters
  • acting as a sounding board to provide insight and opinions 
  • delivering temperature checks on community attitudes

Does this sound like something that would interest you?

If you would be interested in joining the group or would like to find out more information, please email [email protected], or alternatively leave a comment here and one of the team will contact the email address associated with your community account.

    Just wanted to take a moment to remind you all about this new and exciting opportunity...

    As you'll see from Ross' original post, we're currently looking to gauge interest in a group we’re calling the “Community Co-production Group”. Members of this group will actively engage with the community team and offer input on decisions that impact the community’s future. So, it's a great way to really get involved in shaping the way forward for YOUR online community!

    If you are interested in being a part of this, or you would just like to find out a bit more information, then please email [email protected], or alternatively leave a comment here and one of the team will contact the email address associated with your community account.

    Interesting. This looks like an attempt to replace one form of self-policing with another form of self-policing. I’m sure it will appeal to a number of members. I’m not sure it’s the way the wind is blowing. 

    As regards things like benefit related forums it’s simply not possible to provide the expertise needed as has been shown repeatedly in my time here. Self-policing isn’t going to change there not being enough people with sufficient expertise to ensure accurate advice which doesn’t permanently damage peoples incomes for the rest of their lives. Self-policing is also not the way to deal with abuse or personal comments. 

    I believe taking part in this co-production approach was mentioned to me in passing as an incentive to stay. Since then I’ve heard nothing but it now appears to be less a review of the way business is done than a change of clothes for the way things are done. As an approach it’s about five to ten years out of date; has consistently been shown to produce disastrous results and on balance I think it’s likely to be the final nail in the coffin for the likes of me. 

    There is a view that self-regulation is about empowerment. There is another view that it’s really about being co-opted to justify decisions which have already been made.

    Hi @mikehughescq. I'm not sure why you'd think this relates to self-policing, but I'm sorry if you got that impression. This is not the purpose of the co-production group. It is very much intended to be a review of the way business is done. This group's participation in our own internal workshops and reviews will be critical to the development of the community as a service. Perhaps a better way to look at this project is as something some way between a stakeholder focus group and a steering panel. I think we can all agree that there is at least a little ambiguity over what the community should be doing and it is hoped that this group will go a very long way to answering both this and other questions.

    The co-production group is not intended in any way, shape or form to be a step towards self-policing. It's not even a consideration. What it is about is Scope having regular (and more flexible) access to the perspectives of people who are using the service on a daily basis and using those perspectives to guide where we go from here.

    Hello @woodbine

    Do you mean the email that was sent by myself? I don't recall seeing a response from you, nor have I seen one sent to the [email protected] email address. 

    We have contacted everybody who has expressed an interest via this page, and we are still awaiting responses from some people before we progress further.

    Yes, the one from myself. Don't worry, I received your response and logged it :) 

    Also apologies @woodbine, I've done some digging and I now see we received your email the other day, so there's no worries. 

    We will be giving chance for everyone to submit their application before we contact individuals with outcomes, so please be patient with us :)

    Hi @lisathomas50

    I sent you an email containing further information, but I am yet to receive a response from you. 

    If you did send one but it hasn't come through, would you mind re-sending it to [email protected]? Hopefully that will work.

    Thank you
