Cambridgeshire County Council have always worked very closely with The SUN Network, supporting and promoting our work and recently we worked together with a panel of people with lived experience of mental health to collaboratively work on a tender panel for community mental health services.
The County Council used the experience as an example of positive co-productive working. You can read all about it by clicking the link below:
And the County Council Commissioner had this feedback for our panel afterwards:
‘I wanted to say thanks to you and all the people involved in the evaluation for the Recovery and Community Inclusion tender. Sarah from Procurement was really complimentary about how this had been run and also the level of feedback that the evaluators were able to contribute. We have almost finished the evaluation and sign off process so as soon as I can I will be in touch to let you know who the successful provider is. Please can you pass on my thanks to the people who took the time to contribute – the feedback was great and played a valued role in the whole process.’
