Working together for change: using person-centred information for commissioning

Working together for change is an approach to engagement with people using services to review their experiences and determine priorities for change. It can be used to ensure that co-production with local people and families is at the heart of social care transformation programmes. This report describes a six stage process that uses person centred information - such as person centred reviews, person centred plans or support plans - to inform strategic change and commissioning. The report explains why working together is important, looks at the information sources that can be used in commissioning and then discusses the six stage process. The six-stages are identified as: gathering the person-centred information; transferring the information into a usable format; clustering the information into agreed themes; analysing the information; action planning; and sharing the information.
