nef (the new economics foundation) 4 The elements of co-production Assets: transforming the perception of people from passive recipients of services and burdens on the system into one where they are equal partners in designing and delivering services. Building on people’s existing capabilities: altering the delivery model of public services from a deficit approach to one that provides opportunities to recognise and grow people’s capabilities and actively support them to put them to use at an individual and community level. Peer support networks: engaging peer and personal networks alongside professionals as the best way of transferring knowledge.
nef (the new economics foundation) 5 The elements of co-production Reciprocity and mutuality: offering people a range of incentives to engage which enable us to work in reciprocal relationships with professionals and with each other, where there are mutual responsibilities and expectations. Blurring distinctions: removing the distinction between professionals and recipients, and between producers and consumers of services Facilitating rather than delivering: enabling public service agencies to become catalysts and facilitators rather than central providers themselves.
