Over the last few years we have seen a rise in interest in and commitment to co-production in health and social care. The term co-production was first used by Professor Elinor Ostrom in Chicago in the 1970s so that the Police and community could both be instrumental in tackling rising crime rates in the city.
There are many definitions and levels of co-production. Co-production can take place at an individual, group or community level. One definition is: “A relationship where professionals and citizens share power to plan and deliver support together, recognising that both have vital contributions to make in order to improve quality of life for people and communities” (Slay & Stephens 2013).
