COPE Scotland is a community-led charity with co-design, production and delivery at its heart. Scepticism about involving communities exists and while COPE Scotland knows what it does works – how can this be proven?
Durose’s book inspired Hilda to think about how we find other, accessible ways to solve the ‘wicked problems’ facing today’s society and work together in a spirit of mutual respect, co-designing policies and processes.
