Part 2. Examples of co-production in action



We have gathered some case studies and examples of co-production practice in health and in social care, to translate the theoretical frameworks above into what it looks like on the ground. These are intended to offer some inspiration and a sense of the wide range of contexts where co-production can make a difference and add value. Remember that every situation (service, team, community of service users) is different, and your co-production will be similar but unique!

As a follow-up, you might like to:

  • Discuss what you've been reading with your team: which case study stood out for you?
  • Listen to these podcast episodes:
  • Watch (or listen to) this online session about “co-producing with unpaid carers” (1:32’32”) that includes colleagues from Kirklees Council, Neath Port Talbot Council for Voluntary Service (NPT CVS), Swansea Parents Carers Forum, Hafal Crossroads and Pembrokeshire Association of Voluntary Services (PAVS). 
  • Reflect on your service or work area (individually or as a team), and identify any opportunities where co-producing with service users and carers would be helpful.
