This guide outlines the benefits of a co-production approach to delivering children’s services.
This guide is a supplement to a larger report, Backing the Future: why investing in children is good for us all, which is the culmination of a programme of research carried out by NEF and Action for Children.
It has been written to complement a recommendation in the overall project report suggesting that the benefits of a co-production approach to delivering children’s services be evaluated as part of a national pilot funded by the lead departments for children and family services across the four nations. It draws on NEF’s general work in this area and six service-level case studies, undertaken as part of this programme of research.
If you back a recovery plan based around great public services, protecting the planet and reducing inequality, please support NEF to build back better.
