Co-production Week 2024

 1 – 5 July 2024

Theme 2024: ‘Co-production: What’s Missing’?

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 offers people real choice and control.

Monday 1 July marks the start of Co-production Week 2024, a celebration of the power of co-production to design and develop better ways of doing things in social care, hosted by the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE).

It celebrates the benefits of co-production, shares good practice and promotes the contribution of people who access care and support in developing better social care.

The theme this year, ‘Co-production: What’s Missing’?, invites us to look at the need to go beyond familiar voices and increase equity and diversity in co-production, think about how we can access better training and development and have clear definitions and language around co-production. We’ll also be thinking about how to show the impact and difference co-production makes and how we can make a good business case for it.

By focusing on what’s missing, we aim to spark discussions and innovations to address those gaps and improve people’s experience of co-production in social care.

There’ll be a programme of activity throughout the week including webinars and an online conference with guest speakers and workshops highlighting co-production in action as well as tools to show the difference co-production makes.

We’ll share resources, publish blogs and have plenty of interactive discussions on social media highlighting what’s missing in co-production and what’s needed to amplify the experiences and perspectives of diverse groups of people.

We’re currently co-producing the schedule of activity with people with lived experience – more details about what’s happening each day of Co-production Week coming soon!
