Coproduction and Scale

A quote that really applies to the scaling up of coproduction question

“There’s no problem with upscaling if you’re doing something like buying paperclips. But most public services rely on human relationships, so upscaling leads to a huge degradation in the quality of service.”

Peter Holbrook, CEO of Social Enterprise UK

The purpose of the catalogue is to enable practitioners to reflect on their own practice and the extent to which that represents co-production; and to enable them to learn about co-production practice.
