Governments and the public sector can only do so much to support the public in improving their health and wellbeing. The future depends on more co-design of health & wellbeing action by the people who use it most and those who miss out on services available. The pace and scale of Government and the public sector sharing their planning, service design and budgeting powers and control must change radically. Consultation will:  explore the role of civic society in supporting people to improve their daily lives; consider the challenges facing those who work in this area and identify ‘what works’ in overcoming them; and discuss how system leaders can create maximum impact.
