National Co-production Week 2017 – Nothing about us without us
3-7 July 2017
Co-production Week will celebrate the benefits of co-production, share good practice and highlight 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.
Commitments for 2017
Make your Co-production Commitment
For Co-production Week 2017 we want organisations and individuals to make a Co-production Commitment.
The Commitment means promising to do at least one thing to support co-production. For organisations, it could be anything from doing a new co-production plan to sending some staff on a training course to find out about co-production. Individuals can look at how they can do more co-production in their work.

We also 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.
