Co-Production Collaborative for East London

Building on our community's 'living experiences'

we find new ways to meet the needs of local children and families.

CoCo East's Mission
Turning talk into actions!

Our aim is to create safe spaces for local people to be heard, connect to others and makes positive changes together.

Our online meetings are open to anyone interested in supporting our mission.  They are led by parent/carers and are attended by other parent/carers, local charities, community groups, advocacy groups and service providers.

It's not just about the meetings!

Yes, we want our community to be heard and make new connections, but we also want to turn the talk into actions


Everytime parents and carers feel empowered enough to design and deliver activities for themselves we know we're heading in the right direction!
