Highlights from National Co-production Week 2016
SCIE's National Co-production Week in July 2016 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.

Co-production: Overcoming challenges
At the Co-production Festival, we looked at how to overcome challenges in co-production.
