- De-mystifying Co-production
Start with the first conversation and focus on step-by-step improvementsBy Shahana Ramsden Since the launch of Making it Real last week, I have had a number of useful conversations with organisations who are thinking about what "co-production with people" involves in practice and how to make the experience genuine and meaningful. My biggest piece of advice is to recognise that every person using a service - either independently or supported by an advocate - can contribute in an effective way.
- Modelling the change we want to see - how Making it Real was truly co-produced
Modelling the change we want to see - how Making it Real was truly co-producedThe launch of Making it Real has been a busy but energising week for both myself and the National Co-production Advisory Group, so it felt like a good time to reflect on how we have arrived at this point after a three year journey of user engagement. It was June 2009 when I first took up the post of User Engagement manager, at the Department of Health with the Putting People First programme.
- The power of people's stories
Blog by Jaimee Lewis, Communications Manager, Think Local, Act Personal Have you read that story about the recent government policy to give people an "indicative allocation" of money available for their care and support? Where a "service user" goes through a "support planning process" to work out how they will spend their personal budget to best meet "their agreed outcomes" and then after sign off, manage it according to the "chosen deployment options"?My guess is that you have, especially if you work in social care. Maybe less so if you are someone who uses support.
- Budgets and Beyond: Interim Report. A review of the literature on personalisation and a framework for understanding co-production in the 'Budgets and Beyond' project
This project explores the potential for co-production to improve outcomes for those individuals (along with their families and support networks) who are intended to benefit from the move towards greater personalisation of care and support services, including people who have personal budgets or are self funders. The call for care services to be 'personalised' has gathered strength over the last two decades and is a major policy objective of the Coalition Government.
- Can we achieve better value for money and increased choice through market co-production?
Blog by Bill Mumford - Chief Executive of MacIntyre and Chair of VODG In an earlier blog, Clenton Farquharson, Co-Chair of the Making it Real sub group of the National Co-Production Advisory Group, provided a great definition of co-production:"Co-production means that the contribution of people who use services, their families and carers, is maximised and valued"Rather than merely describing a process, Clenton has suggested an outcome- people feeling valued- and in so doing he has modelled the whole approach of the Making it Real framework. I chair the Provider and Workforce Development work stream of Think Local, Act Personal and we have been charged with the task of considering how to facilitate many of the outcomes set out in Making it Real.
- What is co-production?
Blog by Clenton Farquharson Co-chair of Making it Real sub group: National Co-production Advisory Group The National Co-Production Advisory Group is a group of people who use social care services, carers and citizens which was set up following our work with the Department of Health. Our purpose is to continue working in co-production with Government departments and other influential social care and health organisations to co-design, co-develop and co-deliver services.
