Adult Social Care Building Together

We would like to know if you feel that you have a say in how we run our Adults Social care services and if you would like to have more of a say

We’re developing our Building Together Co-production Strategy

Building Together is our new co-production strategy for developing and improving our adult social care services. We want to ensure that people who use adult care social care services and their families and carers work with staff as equals, contributing their experience, skills, and influence on the design, development, delivery, and monitoring services. 

What is Co-production?

Co-production means working together to do something. It’s about people with different views and ideas coming together to make things better for everyone.

Co-production is about the people who use services and carers and people who run services coming together as equals and developing more equal partnerships. In practice this involves people who use services being consulted, included, and working together from the start to the end of any project that affects them. 

When Co-production works well, people who use services and carers are valued by organisations as equal partners and they have influence over decisions made. It means all those involved can genuinely feel they are able to help people and communities to have better lives.

Help us to create the Building Together Forum and Peer Support Network

We want to develop a forum made up of people aged 18 plus who use adult social care services, their carers, and their families.

The forum will develop the Building Together Charter on how they expect adult social care to work in partnership with people who use services and their carers in the designing, review, and ongoing monitoring of services.

The forum will ensure that at all times, people who use services and their carers have an equal voice and influence over decisions made. 

We are looking for 10 people who use services and/or carers to develop our Building Together Forum Board.  

Board members will be expected to attend bi-monthly board meetings normally lasting between two to three hours and will be paid at £25.38 per hour for their time.

We also want a Building Together Peer Support Network of volunteers who will share their views and ideas with the Board and be a support network for those who use services and their carers.
