Free seminar: Co-production and Social Care – translating the Wellbeing Agenda into Practice

Free seminar event organised by the All Wales Academic Social Care Research Collaboration (ASCC) and the Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA)

Tuesday 24th June 2014, 12.30pm - 4pm

Conwy Business Centre, Llandudno Junction

Social care services in Wales are facing an unprecedented increase in demand. To meet this escalating demand, whilst simultaneously maintaining equitable and sustainable social care services, the Welsh Government‘s Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Bill states that everyone “from Government to front line delivery must be prepared to think differently about how services are commissioned and delivered”. 

Co-production of social care is a key component of the Social Services and Well-being agenda that seeks to transform the development and delivery of social care provision with an emphasis on empowering service users and user-led services to develop new models of care. 

This free seminar event focuses on:

  • Achieving co-production in practice – tools and techniques and maximising opportunities
  • Co-designing, participatory budgeting, alliance contracting and collaborative working
  • Measuring  outcomes from co-production

There will be opportunities to network with others over lunch, learn about examples of successful co-production initiatives from guest speakers from across Wales and the North West of England and take part in world café discussions.
