Co-production is a simple concept: combining the expertise of the professionals who provide services and the people who have experience of using them should mean that they work better. 

Do you co-produce your policies and strategies for home adaptations with the people who need them?

Co-production doesn’t just apply to policy and strategy. It also works well for individual adaptation projects. 

Do you co-produce the design and specification of home adaptation projects with the disabled person and their family? 

This is about more than getting a signature to accept a small scale 2D plan that they may or may not completely understand. It’s about developing a design solution with them that suits them.

Budget will inevitably be a factor, but that shouldn’t be an excuse for imposing an unpopular scheme.
