Co-production is understood to mean equal partnership and collaboration between service providers and people using services. Co-production is about recognising that people who use services are experts in their own right, rather than passive recipients of care (‘clients’, ‘service users’), and about involving them in the shaping of services. This requires a shift of power and control from service providers towards people using services. Instead of having services designed and delivered for people with disabilities, they are designed and delivered with them.
