LEAP's CoCreate Fund supports organisations to work collaboratively with local people to develop initiatives that benefit pregnant women or children aged 0-5.
Since September 2021, CoCreate has supported the development and delivery of early years initiatives by 14 community-based organisations. Between Oct 2021 and June 2023 CoCreate partners delivered 152 sessions or initiatives, benefiting 459 children and 450 parents and caregivers.
By working through a network of community-based organisations, LEAP’s CoCreate Fund is able to ensure some of the most isolated families are connected to services on offer through the CoCreate partnership and to other Early Years services and support.
We are proud that LEAP's CoCreate Fund has been shortlisted in Partnership Working Award category in the Children & Young People Now Awards 2023.
Co-production is an equal relationship between people providing and people receiving services. Knowledge from lived experiences and professional experience is equally valued.
