Co-production: what it is and how it can be employed
What is transformational co-production?
People’s contribution is only looked for if it is helping to deliver services. Transformational co-production means that the power and control changes, so that people who use services are actively involved in all aspects of designing, commissioning, and delivering services.
Disabled people are sick and tired of holding the Cinderella role within society where they are either excluded from or marginalised within mainstream social activity. Disabled people’s human rights are being denied as detailed under Article Nineteen of the Convention on the Rights of Disabled People. Disabled people’s right to self-determine – Nothing About Us, Without Us – is not reflected in the practice of policy development and co-production of service delivery as much as it should be.
In this open meeting a number of perspectives will be outlined based upon the experiences of service users engaging with service professionals.
- Kevin Caulfield, one of the Strategic Leads for Co-production, will speak on the way co-producing has been developed in Hammersmith and Fulham where eight strategic recommendations for change in decision making / policy development were put forward in November 2017.
- Since 2018 Haringey Council along with its users, carers and community representatives has begun to build in co-production seriously in its review of adult social care and support. Gordon Peters, Chair of Haringey Over50s Forum, will give an overview of the changes to date, and Liz Ciakajlo, whose mother lived and died in Osborne Grove, will describe the re-investment and re-design of that home.
- We have approached Andrew Lee, People First, to talk about how learning disabled people have been involved in co-producing a project around the Covid-19 pandemic.
- Sandra Daniels, acting chair of RSC, will chair the meeting as well as giving an insight into her role as an advocate working for People First Birmingham, supporting learning disabled people on the Learning Disability Partnership Board and local authority user involvement group.
