    Breaking down the barriers to co-production

    A new report presents an outline of what is holding back co-production and identifies some possible solutions to break down these barriers and promote future progress.

    The SCIE report draws together learning and discussions from its third annual co-production week in 2018.

    Participants shared their ideas on how to overcome eight main barriers to co-production, including a lack of clear policies and legislation and a lack of knowledge and understanding about what co-production means.

    Web polls found 75% of people thought a legal duty would strengthen co-production. People said the two things that would strengthen co-production the most are bringing together evidence of what works in co-production and more leadership from senior managers.
