National Co-production Week 2018- 2 – 6 July


Co-production Week will again celebrate the benefits of co-production, share good practice and highlight the contribution of people who use services and carers to developing better public services.

This year’s theme is breaking down the barriers to co-production. We want to hear from people about what holds back co-production locally and nationally and how we can break down the barriers.

We also want organisations and individuals to:

  • hold events about co-production
  • tell us about your event and we can promote it
  • tell us about examples of good practice in co-production.
  • tweet about co-production using the hashtag #coproweek.

SCIE's Co-production Week activities will include our annual Co-production Festival on 2 July, co-production training, a webinar, a Twitter event and much more.
