The Co Production Development service support Voluntary and Community Sector organisations and the people they support to become involved in Co-production work to design and deliver services.


Adult Social Services want to work alongside anyone who is receiving or has received professional social work support, to help plan, design and deliver better social work practice in Swansea.

If your organisation is in touch with people that are supported by or have had contact with social workers, find out more and get in touch.

Help to decide what good social work practice would look like from start to finish, what things make up a good experience and why they are important.


“Co-production is a relationship where professionals and citizens share power to plan and deliver support – together, recognising that both have vital contributions to make in order to improve quality of life for people and communities.”

- National Co-production, Critical Friends Group

The project works to build trusting relationships with disabled people, young carers, carers, parents and organisations to ensure everyone that wants to can become involved in Co-production.

This is a collaborative project developed with (and funded by) City and County of Swansea to help meet their new duty to Co-produce services outlined in The Social Service and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014 (The Act).

The Act requires local authorities to promote social enterprises, co-operatives, user led services and the third sector. They must also to take a pro-active approach in promoting the involvement of people in the design and delivery of services.

The Co Production Development service supports Voluntary and Community Sector organisations and the people they support to become involved in Co-production work to design and deliver services.

Main Aim: To support the development of co-productive approaches across adult services within the City and County of Swansea.
