Co-production consultancy support

We build local capability and capacity to ensure that co-production is embedded and sustainable.

Why work with us?

SCIE believes the role of co-production is fundamental to social care and the building of engaged and resilient communities and Local Authorities. The role of co-production is critical to supporting the delivery of the new Adult Social Care reforms and supporting CQC assurance.

Our starting point is that meaningful co-production with people who draw on services and carers is central to developing quality services which improve outcomes and create efficiencies.

Our work is based on the latest evidence and our extensive experience about what works to embed co-production in complex organisations

Our approach

Co-production is working well where people within organisations have a clear direction, sense of purpose and the principles of co-production are embedded within the narrative and vision of the organisation. To achieve this, SCIE employs a four-stage approach that identifies a baseline of co-production from an individual, organisational and system level and recommends solutions to build co-production infrastructure and support using a range of diagnostic tools.
