Co-production

Consultancy support on co-producing services

SCIE are experts on co-production. Co-production is about professionals working in equal partnerships with people who use services and carers toward shared goals.

It means the engagement of those who use care and support services at all stages of planning, delivery and review.

We were nervous about how to approach co-production but SCIE’s engaging and positive approach has helped us make excellent progress.

Co-production is about developing equal partnerships between people who use services, carers and professionals. Co-production can help with the implementation of the Care Act 2014; it encourages cost-effective services; and looks to providing improved user and carer experience of services. Co-production can be a slippery concept which is tricky to understand and hard to implement in practice. We can help you to make it work.
