Who we are

The National Co-production Advisory Group (NCAG) is a team of people who use services, carers, families, experts by experience, patients and citizens who are committed to ensuring that personalised services and support based in the community become a reality for all.

Together the group has wide-ranging knowledge and ability, skills to offer organisations and information about how to co-produce, co-design and
co-operate.

By bringing together individuals with experience of care and support, we can work together to challenge organisations to work in a way that reflects what matters most to people.

As individuals, group members also belong to different networks, both voluntary and organisational, which enriches the experience and knowledge we share with the group.

At the forefront of NCAG's work are Equality, Access and Fairness. Additionally we bring determination, passion, team work, respect and pride into our work supporting co-production.

What we do

Our role is to influence health and social care policy at national, regional and local level.

We work with the Think Local Act Personal (TLAP) Partnership to make sure that the programme is fully co-produced with people who use services, carers and citizens.

We have regular meetings every few months to develop action plans, check on progress and share information.
