About us

The Collaborative Network is a community of organisations and individuals from the public sector, private sector and third sector who, collectively, have a passion for delivering systems and services differently to better serve the communities of Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire.

This network has a shared ambition to drive change, through stronger and more proactive engagement with people and communities, so they can live better lives. Central to the network’s ideas are two principles:

Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD); as an approach to sustainable community development, where the premise is that communities can drive the development process themselves by identifying and mobilising existing, but often unrecognised assets.

Social co-design; where ABCD can be initiated through a process of co-design, co-development and co-production with users and communities, to shape service design informed by user insights. The network has been inspired by the book ‘Radical Help,’ by Hilary Cottam and is using the tenets of Cottam’s work to start its process of exploration.
