The Building Connections Fund: Co-design and community spaces
Guidance and Final report
By evaluating how co-design was used by Building Connections Fund grantees, we were able to identify the common factors which the most impactful charities have. From what we learnt, we’ve published practical guidance on planning and evaluating co-design for community spaces. It includes:
- Top tips for creating and monitoring a co-design process
- Advice on how to evaluate co-design by reflecting on: the benefits of co-design for staff and young people; the quality of the co-design process; and insights into addressing loneliness and social isolation.
This guidance was developed for the Building Connections Fund grant-holders who are working specifically on co-design and community spaces, but it can be used by any charity or funder looking to design or improve its co-design process.
