Theory of Change

The visualization of our theory of change represents people at the centre of all our work, and the importance of relationships in the process. The intersecting ovals represent our core strategies designed to work towards our vision of system change:


a) to engage a range of key stakeholder partners from service users to policy makers;

b) to educate and build capacity for people to engage in inclusive co-design;

c) to promote innovation that moves beyond the status quo;

d) to evaluate the implementation and impact of inclusive co-design.

The arrows represent the dynamic evolving nature of this work and the intersections between the strategies. The three overlapping images depict our proposed growth over time in terms of our sphere of influence, expanding our reach from local to global across a range of diverse stakeholder communities.
