National Co-production Week – Nothing about us without us
2-6 July 2018
For the third year running, 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.
Co-production: What it is and how to do it?
What’s happening in July 2018?
As in 2016 and 2017, we are asking 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
- contribute to the Co-production Week blog. Here’s the 2017 version.
Co-production commitments in 2017
For Co-production Week 2017 we received 50 commitments from organisations and individuals, promising to do at least one thing to support co-production. For organisations, it was anything from doing a new co-production plan to sending some staff on a training course to find out about co-production. Individuals looked at how they can do more co-production in their work.
