Co-production is an equal relationship between people providing and people receiving services. Knowledge from lived experiences and professional experience is equally valued. People actively share information, power and responsibility for decision-making.
We work together to plan, design, deliver and evaluate services to make them as effective as possible. The more diverse the residents involved in the teams, the better the services are likely to be. Cities and towns up and down the country are working in co-productive relationships with residents. These projects find that their community’s quality of life improves as well as services being more efficient.
