'Co-pro' champ Enzo is improving services for all

Enzo, from Peterborough, is a long serving member of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Learning Disability Partnership Board.

And after getting a new laptop through local charity Enabling Independence, he’s got more flexibility to have his say and get involved in improving local services.

The Partnership Board he sits on gives autistic people and people with learning disabilities a say on adult social care services provided by Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough City Council.

Independent Members, like Enzo, use their experience to help improve services now and in the future.

He also brings other people’s experiences to the Partnership Board from Peterborough’s Network Team which supports adults with autism and learning disabilities.

“I’ve been involved for a long, long time now. Things have really improved a lot - but they can still get better!”

“I like being part of the Learning Disability Partnership Board.  We get good support, and we can see what we do has an impact. 
— Enzo, Independent Member

Enzo loves the new laptop as it means he can join Zoom and Teams meetings online and is not tied to being at home. 

“It’s terrific.  I can take it with me when I go out and I’m pretty confident using it now. Although I still need a bit of help sometimes, like knowing when it’s my turn to speak and how to mute and unmute the microphone,” he said.

Talk co-production with us at our conference

Co-production is involving local people in the services they use.  And it’s one of the big topics we’re discussing at our Healthwatch Conference and AGM on Wed 21 July.

Like to join our online workshop on co-production?  Do share your thoughts about how we can involve more people – like Enzo or perhaps you – in shaping local services in our area and improving health and care for everyone.

Our whole event is BSL-interpeted.
