Highlights from National Co-production Week 2018

Breaking down the barriers to co-production. Highlights. 2-6 July 2018

For the third year running, Co-production Week 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.

Breaking down the barriers

Full one hour webinar

In 2018 we wanted to break down the barriers to co-production. People tweeted, emailed and blogged about their experiences of barriers and the solutions they have use to break them down.
