Working Together for ChangeWorking Together for Change is a person-centred approach that shapes change with local people and harnesses their energy and intelligence for strategic planning, commissioning and service development. It is our methodology for system transformation through co-production.
Working Together for Change (WTfC) can help make better use of scarce resources and lead to better outcomes by ensuring the right support is available in ways that makes sense to people. The approach is flexible and scalable, from a provider planning their business, to a statutory authority identifying commissioning priorities. It goes well beyond consultation towards enabling people with support needs to play a leading role in determining the changes they want to see.
The approach is a structured, facilitated and highly engaging way of getting results. It uses person-centred information to shine a light on what is working well for people, what is not working so well and what might need to change for the future and engages everyone in planning how things could work better and differently. This was the methodology used by the Department of Health for the National Provider Development Programme that formed an important part of the Government's work on Putting People First in 2010-11. It is now being used up and down the country in a wide variety of settings, including in health, social care and education. Through use in many different environments, people using WTfC have helped build a new approach to public service design that empowers local people to truly lead the debate.For a graphic overview and breakdown of the 8 Steps of Working Together for Change please follow the link below:
