Co-Production in Adult Social Care (SCIE)

Summary

Co-production promises to make an important contribution towards solving the many challenges facing social care, including pressures to improve: (i) the cost-effectiveness of services, (ii) user and carer experience, (iii) community capacity and (iv) better integration of health and care.

This Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) guide explores the concept of co-production. It explains how to approach the development of co-productive methods of working with people who use services and with carers.

“Definitions of exactly what co-production means still vary but it is the term that is gaining common currency as the way to describe working in partnership with people who use services, carers and citizens to improve public services”.
