Could a democratic ownership model help improve public trust in social care?

Is there a democratically accountable ownership model for health and care services that could make a difference? Could the active membership and co-operative ownership of workers, service users, volunteers and family members rebuild public trust in services and put an end to cruelty and neglect through a socially inclusive solution where the system of care is owned by the recipients?Check out this …See More

Moving beyond the market: a new agenda for public services, with co-production at its heart

Successive governments have pursued a public services agenda based on market competition, consumer choice and outsourcing to private providers. The promise has been better responsive to people’s ‘consumer preferences’ and a decentralisation of knowledge and power away from central planners – all at lower cost.But there is little evidence that these benefits are materialising. Power has been concentrated in the hands of a…See More

Great blog on co-production from a member of SCIE's Co-production network

This is recommended reading! Matt Langsford a 22 year old with experience of the care system writes powerfully about what co-production is, why it's important and outlines some of the steps that SCIE are taking to implement it across their organisation.As he so eloquently says, we need to 'smash through' the jargon because co-production is an 'important issue and it will help people to have more control over their care and support'.Read the blog …See More

Background to your work
I work in the social policy team at nef and am focused on co-production. Current areas of work include developing practical tools for commissioning co-production, establishing a co-production auditing approach and gathering the evidence base across the sector. I'm also working with practitioners to test new co-produced approaches, like collective purchasing using personal budgets, parent-led childcare approaches or dual currency models to support independent living.

Hi Lucy

Thanks

The headlines are that it explored how individuals valued themselves and others outside of comparison and competition, and how processes were used.  It identified that there are many hierarchies that can come to the fore where people can feel above or below the other be it societal norms, or skill sets.  These can cause more problems of power/powerlessness if not addressed.  

Individuals valued themselves outside of comparison/competition, by how others benefitted from the individual’s skill eg empty plates if worked in kitchen.  Colleagues were valued by listening to them/appreciate their work.  Thus rewards are free and limitless for all, unlike hierarchies which have limited rewards that foster competition.

Processes, when motivation for their use is identified, can offer opportunities for creativity and adoption/hybrid of processes from hierarchies.

I hope this v brief summary helps!

Thank you Lucie - look forward to all the comments/suggestions/ideas/ thoughts.  Will be great to tap into the local network group.  Thanks again

Hi Lucy, many thanks for your comments, I have spoken to Lambeth re this but they haven't developed anything in this area nor haven't heard of anything so am thinking that it may be innovative although I am reluctant to use this word as it is overused, I thought it may be of use to put a line out in this network while I am finding my way around it so to speak. Re your work on co-production and commissioning we have done and are still doing some good work in Norfolk involving ICC and others, you may want to have a chat with lisa.christensen@norfolk.gov.uk, director of Children Services.

Hi Lucie, 

I went to the Co-production event in Cardiff last week and this network was promoted as part of the way of keeping up to date with the outcomes of the event.

Hi Lucie,

I found the network by searching for co-production info on Google. I was motivated to join because I am eager to become involved in co-production work and wanted to find out who the players are in my area (East Anglia). I'll have a look at my regional group, as you suggested.

Best wishes

Amanda

Hi Lucie,

Thanks for the welcome.  I heard about the network though NESTA as I was looking for the three papers you had published on co-production.  I used to work for Young Scot who have been doing increasing work in this area. I'm just back to work after mat leave so will have a think about case studies we could add. Thanks

Hi Lucie

Thanks for your welcome. I'll follow your leads... and look up Catriona. We were looking for some cross-border input too as sometimes it's easier to be challenging/inquiring/inspiring if you come from afar and are not already therefore quite so connected/with history etc.. I was thinking someone from Wales or England or even Northern Ireland might be able to do some 'straight talking' in ways that could help to keep us Scots on our toes!

I think the event we're planning should be quite interesting - a new (SNP) administration and good opportunities to build on the partnership approach to co-production innovation we've been trailing. 

Thanks again for the hello. I do a similar job with the fiery spirits network at carnegie - being on the receiving end helps me remember how much of a difference it makes!

Hi Lucie, Thanks for the welcome.  I found out about this via some of the current Scotland group members who have been working alongside in a coproduction model for policy design with young people.  I look forward to being able to contribute and learn with others using the network. Thanks Susan
