Co-production Week 2023
Co-production Week is running from 3rd - 7th July and we are aiming to celebrate the benefits of co-production, share good practice and promote the contribution of people who use services and carers in developing better public services.
The theme of this year's Co-production Week is "Co-production in the real world". Co-production is about working in equal partnership with people using services, carers, families and the community. Co-production offers the chance to transform social care and health provision to a model that offers people real choice and control.
Co-production work within Warrington Safeguarding Partnerships
Co-production is a regular agenda item on our Practitioners Forum and Safeguarding Adults Forum where agencies and volunteers come together on a dedicated session to share any current co-production work, good practice and ideas on co-production.
Our Practitioners Forum is open to all practitioners working with children and families in Warrington - for more information, visit our Practitioners Forum page
Our Safeguarding Adults Forum is open to all practitioners working with adults in Warrington - for more information, visit our Safeguarding Adults Forum page
You don't have to attend these forums just to share your experience and ideas of co-production, we'd love to hear what you are up to and for you to share any new ideas at any time by getting in touch with us by email firstname.lastname@example.org
Co-production & Learning from Experiences Network
Warrington Safeguarding Partnerships is part of the Adult Social Care Co-production & Learning from Experiences Network which is a newly formed network to bring together our good practice and current work around co-production, to learn from others, to develop our approaches and start a journey of improvement. The group have produced a Co-production Commitment and Principles draft which you can view below. The Business Development team welcome your thoughts and feedback about this draft document. To provide any feedback or to get involved in the network please email email@example.com
ASC Co-production Commitment and Principles draft
Adult Social Care really want to hear and listen to individuals experiences of services they provide to inform how they deliver their services going forward and in the future. If you would like to get involved and share your experience or you work with an individual who would like to have a reflective conversation of the services they access/use then please email firstname.lastname@example.org and the team will be in touch to arrange the most accessible way to have these conversations.
On Tuesday 4th July, 11:30-12:30, SCIE (Social Care Institute for Excellence) is hosting a webinar which will be co-presented by people with lived experience and social care staff. The webinar will be discussion-based and will delve into some of the eye-opening results about defining and understanding co-production; and what stops good co-production happening among both social and health care staff and people with lived experience. Plus there are recommendations to remove barriers and promote meaningful co-production. During the webinar, SCIE will be sharing the results of their co-production survey, which was carried out earlier in the year. To register for the webinar, please click here
