Abstract [en]

This article describes an evaluation of co-producing parenting support services in a rural municipalityin Sweden. The evaluation looked at the implementation process of a series of positive activities forchildren and their parents, data from the participating parents and the economy of the project.Methods included interviews, questionnaires, observations and a review of protocols, e-mails, andweb pages. Both qualitative and quantitative analytical methods were used. We identified two essentialcomponents for successful co-production: 1) The balance between the two actors (public and voluntarysector) in terms of interests, commitment and experienced positive impacts and 2) That bothactors remain within their core competencies. Parents were satisfied with the number and quality ofthe activities and reported improvement in their relationship with their child. Costs for the six sessionsprovided during the project were 1897 SEK/participant for the orienteering club and 2635 SEK/participantfor the riding club.
