10. How to build good relationships

  • We need to remember that everyone has different views and experiences. For example, our partners from a local council might not know about disability. Disabled people might not know about delivering public services. We need to support each other to learn.

  • Sometimes disabled people get angry because their views have not always been heard. It is really important to look forward and be positive about this new chance to be heard. So we need to build good relationships with our coproduction partners, based on trust, good communication and supporting each other.
