The Challenge of Co-production: How equal partnerships between professionals and the public are crucial to improving public services

pdf version of the report – The Challenge of Co-production

“Public services face an unprecedented set of challenges. But by involving individuals and users in the design and delivery of public services through co-production, services can be more effective, efficient and sustainable.”

“New challenges face public services in the UK. These include increasing demand, rising expectations, reduced budgets and seemingly intractable social problems. This report argues that co-production – users and professionals working together to design and deliver public services in equal partnership – has the potential to deliver a major shift in the way we provide public services.

By involving individuals and users in the design and delivery of public services, rather than treating them as passive recipients of services, co-production allows health, education, policing and other public services to be delivered more effectively, more efficiently and more sustainably

The report is the first of three publications to be delivered from a major project between NESTA’s Public Services Innovation Lab and nef to increase the understanding of co-production and how it can be applied to public services.”
