Summary of report contentHealthwatch Southampton, in association with Touch Network CIC, created this workbook on the 'Ideas for wellbeing' project. Ideas for Wellbeing is a project commissioned by Southampton Integrated Commissioning Unit to improve its work surrounding co-production with a particular focus on what Peer Support and a Service User Network could look like in Southampton. The workbook is a journal of the experience of running this project, alongside the presentation of results in an engaging way. This workbook includes details of the launch event for the project, which consisted of a showing of a number of short films followed by a Q&A, the survey and details of 'creating a buzz' - the publicity and engagement surrounding the project. There was also 3 discussion groups, attended by 35 people. Reflections noted on the project included: - We have learnt that peer support does not come in one form, and community networks are significant in helping people’s days to be better, and that this is consistent across a wide range of groups and is backed up by national research. - We’ve learnt very clearly what doesn’t work when it comes to working together, and we have begun to build a picture of what would work better. - We’ve learnt that to get the best out of our community in terms of their ideas, thoughts and opinions, we must be open minded in our conversations, and we must address the balance of power within these. The more power is shared equally across communities the more we can create services that work and are needed. There are also a number of information providing pieces in the workbook, including several 'Top Ten Tips' on: Working together Developing Community Networks For developing projects delivered by those with lived experience
