Launch event: Co-production Resources for Social Care Providers
Person-centredness, strength-based approaches and co-productive collaboration all come from the same core belief: that everyone has expertise in their own life, the right to have a say in the decisions that affect their lives and to be treated as an equal
Indeed, co-production is mentioned several times in the Care Act statutory guidance, one example being: “Local authorities should, where possible, actively promote participation in providing interventions that are co-produced with individuals, families, friends, carers and the community”.
Over the last year N&SCS have been working with the Making It Real Board to co-produce a set of resources to enable and encourage social care providers to extend their person-centred practice into co-production. Those resources will be launched on 26th March at the Abbey Conference Centre, following the N&SCS care provider meeting being held in the morning.
The launch will include presentations from the Making It Real Board, Healthwatch and Carers Matter Norfolk.
