The implications for work, health, and volunteering

The concept of ‘co-production’ is emerging as a radical challenge to existing approaches to local economic development and the delivery of welfare and public services.
This publication features three essays exploring the concept.
As part of the Hidden Work research programme with the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, NEF (the new economics foundation) organised three expert seminars on co-production. Each one was framed by an essay that set some of the challenges thrown up by a new idea. This publication makes those essays more widely available.
If you back a recovery plan based around great public services, protecting the planet and reducing inequality, please support NEF to build back better.
