The National Co-Production Advisory Group

Why the co-production group was developed

  • The White Paper “Our health, our care, our say” recognises that people want access to support when they need it. This was confirmed in Putting People First (2007) concordat.

  • Putting People First set out a shared vision and commitment to the transformation of adult social care, through a radical reform of public services.

  • It was recognised that this reform could only take place if it was done hand in hand with people who use services and their carers.

and who is involved

  • People with learning disabilities

  • Mental health service users

  • Family carers

  • Older people

  • People who use direct payments/individual budgets

  • People who are lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered

  • And black and ethnic minorities and hard to reach groups

  • In March The National Co-production Advisory Group became an independent group that is hosted by The Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE).

  • The group also works in partnership with “Think Local Act Personal”......

We also work with central government and other bodies

  • Advising Department of Health on policy and delivery (e.g. White Paper, Direct Payments)

  • Supporting Local Government Group work with members and sector improvement

  • Influencing other bodies e.g. shaping social care workforces and leadership strategies with Skills for Care and Skills Academy

What have The National Co-production Group

achieved so far.

We have been involved in co-producing many documents and we are really starting to change the way the government thinks about working with people who use services and their carers.

Recently we have be involved with


Making it Real

About the TLAP Partnership

  • A “partnership agreement” was launched in November 2010. States our commitment to moving forward with personalisation and community-based support.

  • More than 30 national and umbrella organisations representing the broad interest in transforming adult social care across England have committed to working in partnership.

  • The organisations who joined the partnership will work collectively to develop and share innovative practice so all citizens have more choice and control over the support they experience.

  • Picks up where Putting People First left off but importantly represents a key shift from government-led to sector-led support.

Making it Real

  • Will help to mark progress towards personalised, community–based support

  • Developed by TLAP, led by the Co-Production Advisory Group

What is it?

  • A set of statements from people who use services , carer and citizens saying what they would expect to see and experience if personalisation is real and working well in a locality or organisation.

  • These are then matched against key elements that would need to be in place to make these experiences possible.

  • These “markers” will help show how well a locality or organisation is doing in achieving personalisation and community-based support.

What it is not?

  • NOT Performance management – TLAP is a voluntary movement for change (ADASS, Local Government Group, Department of Health, major provider bodies and the Care Quality Commission support Making it Real ).

  • We believe Councils and organisations providing social care support will want to use Making it Real with local communities and people using support to show progress.

What people who use services, carers and citizens can do

  • Influence – remind local organisations about Making it Real

  • Co-production –work together with Making it Real organisation to develop action plans and top three priorities

  • Monitor – remind organisations about their commitments and feedback directly to them if priorities are not met

  • Communicate – share your stories through blogs, newsletter articles, blogs on the TLAP website

  • Feedback – volunteer to test out web pages and provide email feedback
