Co-Production Works is a bespoke consultancy which specialises in supporting organisations across public services to work in co-production with people who use services, carers and citizens.
Pete, the founder of Co-production Works, has 30 years experience of working in participation, and co-production. This includes 16 years as Head of Co-production at the Social Care Institute for Excellence. Pete has experience of using mental health services and in 2022 completed an MA in leading and consulting at the Tavistock Centre.
“I am delighted to be a part of TAPPI2 which is a unique opportunity to explore how technology can contribute to person centred care. I bring to TAPPI2 many years of experience of developing co-production in complex programmes. I will use this to make sure that the voices of people who draw on social care support will be at the heart of TAPPI2.”
Jolie Goodman, an artist who has worked from a survivor perspective in the mental health sector for over 20 years for both voluntary and statuary organisations, specialises in co-producing relationships with a diverse range of stakeholders, said:
“I am thrilled to be part of leading the co-production on the TAPPI2 Project. It’s a wonderful opportunity for me to combine my skills and learning from leading projects with people living and working in later life housing, my expertise in co-production, with my passion to improve the quality of life for older people.”
The Cambridge Centre for Housing and Planning Research (CCHPR) is a University of Cambridge Research Centre, and is part of the Department of Land Economy. CCHPR’s multidisciplinary team of researchers are dedicated to carrying out innovative research that is relevant for policy and practice, and to providing an evidence base for making positive change with a view to reducing inequality, and improving housing supply and affordability.
Dr Gemma Burgess is Director of the Cambridge Centre for Housing and Planning Research at the University of Cambridge, where she leads a multidisciplinary team working on multiple policy-oriented research projects for a broad range of funders. Widely published, Gemma’s research interests include land supply and the delivery of housing through the planning system, housing and digital innovation, digital exclusion, and housing options for an ageing population.
“This collaborative research has significant potential for real world impact as the TAPPI principles are translated from theory into practice. Housing, care and health are closely interconnected and cannot be considered in silos and new technologies are an opportunity to facilitate positive individual and service level outcomes across these areas. We are delighted to be part of the team that helps embed the TAPPI principles in service delivery and shares learning to support best practice.”
