National Co-production Week – Nothing about us without us
SCIE's National Co-production Week was the first event of its kind. It celebrated the benefits of co-production, shared good practice and highlighted the contribution of people who use services and carers to developing better public services.
Co-production is about working in equal partnership with people using services, carers, families and citizens. Co-production offers the chance to transform social care and health provision to a model that that offers people real choice and control.
National Co-production Week: SCIE's activities
SCIE marked National Co-production Week by:
- holding an Introduction to co-production training session
- sharing good practice. In the run-up to the week and in the week itself SCIE tweeted and blogged about good practice in co-production
- holding a co-production festival with members of its Co-production Network and invited guests.
How can organisations and individuals contribute?
We still want organisations and individuals to:
- hold events about co-production
- tell us about your event and we can promote it
- tell us about examples of good practice in co-production. We will include the best ones in our co-production guide’s practice examples section
- tweet about co-production using the hashtag #coproweek.
SCIE has a long history of being at the forefront of co-production. To find out more about SCIE’s work around co-production see:
