Co-production is about ensuring that people who use services are given a genuine say in what they are and how they are run. It means going beyond consultation but including people who are affected from the start of the process as genuine partners.
Co-production is about giving people a VOICE and acting as a CHALLENGE to decision makers.
Co-production is about recognising that people have a range of views and experiences. It should ensure that those who are say less or are quieter are listened to as much as those who are confident.
Co-production is about there being a genuine and open conversation between partners. It is about making sure that people have realistic expectations about what can be achieved.
This project has been funded by Bradford Council’s Health and Wellbeing department to make sure that Disabled People have a say in what is needed in the Bradford District.
