TLAP team news
TLAP Director Lynda Tarpey finished up on 9 December and takes with her all of our good wishes. Caroline Speirs, who leads on Building Community Capacity and Making it Real, has temporarily taken on additional responsibilities as Head of TLAP till end March 2017 to help work with the TLAP Partners, Chairs and programme board to develop the work programme for 2017 and beyond.

TLAP Partnership Day
TLAP hosted a partner’s day in late November, chaired by Sally Percival and Martin Yates from the National Coproduction Advisory Group. Over 40 people came together to help TLAP agree the most important things to take action on in 2017, around improving  choice and control, working in co-production and building supportive, resilient communities. We thought together about what each TLAP partner can plan to do about these things over the next year or so, by working individually and together. This work is informing the development of next year’s work programme which will set out a compelling and unique case for what the sector wants to achieve on personalisation and community-based support. We will keep you updated as the work programme shapes up for the New Year.

Ladder of participation

You can watch the films from the session featuring members of our Co-production Advisory Group. Members describe the ladder of participation with an explanation of the different steps on the rung toward achieving full co-production in health and social care from coercion at the bottom through to co-production at the top.
