We can use a fictitious but realist place - the London Borough of Slipham - as a Living Lab to explore how to improve the ways in which people connect with local services, organisations, and opportunities in their community. We can also work together in the Lab to find out what support organisations need, and what is involved in putting ideas into practice. To do that we’ll have a background map of existing connections, some characters and organisations, and some challenges to meet. The Lab could then be developed - subject to funding - as a “for real” co-design toolkit for local people and organisations.
