Co-production is all about people coming together to shape, create and deliver new and improved ways of doing things.
Some of Collaborative Newcastle’s co-production projects are at the planning stage and include ambitious proposals to change systems and services. Examples include:
Work to transform services for children and families in Newcastle by creating a single, central point of contact for each family –
a person who will get to know, understand and work with each family. This role would provide support and advice and co-ordinate the right mix of practical, health, emotional and social support as required.
Development of wellbeing centres –
which would aim to prevent the onset of serious diseases through traditional treatment and care as well as through a wide range of physical and mental health support to ensure that people get well and stay well (this could include everything from help to stop smoking and weight loss support to counselling for grief, anxiety or depression).
