The Ladder of Co-Production

What is the ladder of participation?
The ladder describes a series of steps towards co-production in health and social care. It supports greater understanding of the various stages of access and inclusion before full co-production is achieved.
Co-production operates at many levels: strategic, service design and development and individual.
TLAP’s ladder of co-production is used to describe co-production at strategic commissioning level, but it can be adapted to any of the other levels as well.
