Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to explore the process of using a co‐production partnership approach in the development of a Recovery College pilot. Design/methodology/approach – This is a case study of the co‐production process, using action research to learn from ongoing reflection, mid‐project review and feedback questionnaires. Findings – The partnership process is an integral and valued aspect of the Recovery College. Challenges include different organisational cultures and processes and the additional time required. Mutual respect, appreciation of different expertise, communication, a shared vision and development plan have been key to success. The paper focused on governance and fidelity; recruitment and training; curriculum development and evaluation. People are enthusiastic and motivated. Co‐production and equal partnership are a valuable approach to developing a Recovery College. Originality/value – At present many regions are developing Recovery Colleges. This paper describes one approach and shows that co‐production is valuable to the process of developing a Recovery College.
