Highlights from National Co-production Week 2019 - Sharing power
In 2019, we talked about power and how this needs to be shared more equally with people who use services and carers.
We showed, with practical examples, live guests and innovative seminars how more equal partnerships with people who use services and carers can be achieved. After all, it is only when everyone’s contribution is valued equally and power is shared that meaningful co-production can happen.
We got people to tweet, email and blog about their experiences of power with examples of when this has been shared – what did this look like and what was the outcome?
