Co-Production and Personalisation in Social Care: Changing Relationships in the Provision of Social Care

Paperback
This book explores the theory and practice of the developing innovative practice of 'co-production' - a model of service in which users of a service will play an active and participatory role in the service provided to them, adopting a working partnership. Examples of methods and services designed on co-production principles are given by the experienced contributors, including housing initiatives in which the users, rather than professionals, provide support to each other and criminal justice settings in which offenders participate in active restorative justice programmes. Drawing together key figures in the field of social care, this book is important reading for social care practitioners and service providers wanting to stay up to date on the latest developments in the field , as well as academics, researchers and students.
