Working together to deliver Adult Social Care
Co-production, helping to guide service development
Co-production is increasingly helping to guide service development in adult social care and brings together people who care about, work in and use social care. It involves people who use services, or care for someone who does, working alongside professionals as equals to put together ideas, knowledge and experience to design and deliver adult social care and support. Co-production recognises the potential of joint working and that people who use services are often the best people to design them. Listening to carers feedback about wanting staff to be better trained in understanding carers has led to the co-production of staff training; Carers have met with staff to decide on the content and approach to training and contribute to delivering key messages.
