Since the 1st April, many of the big changes to the English social care system outlined in the Care Act 2014 have been in place. Co-production is an important theme throughout the new Act – it recommends that councils ‘should persue the principle that market shaping and commissioning should be shared endeavours, with commissioners working alongside people with support needs, carers, family members, care providers, representatives of care works, relevant voluntary, user and other support organisations and the public to find shared and agreed solutions’.
This one-day workshop aims to show how councils can work with citizens to meet the co-production requirements of Act, drawing on a range of evidence of innovative practice and incorporating advice and examples to illustrate the steps that can be taken to make progress.
- Participants become familiar with the theory and practice of co-production.
- Participants become familiar with how co-production fits within the Care Act and how co-production can promote the core aims of the Act.
- Participants develop skills in methods that support co-production in commissioning and market shaping.
