Ruth Dineen


I am the co-founder of the Co-production network for Wales, an organisation campaigning for co-production principles of equality and reciprocity to be placed at the heart of Welsh public services.

I'm also a UK Higher Education Academy Teaching Fellow with a background in education - one of the best jobs in the entire world. I've worked in secondary schools, in further & higher education, and in the UK and China, focusing on creativity in the broadest sense of the word. I'm a trained coach and an Action Learning and Appreciative Inquiry Facilitator.

I joined Cartrefi as a trustee in 2015, hugely impressed by their commitment to ensuring that those they support feel safe, respected and able to realise their potential. Their decision to become a member-led co-operative has, I believe, significantly extended their ability to do just that.
