Change that leads to better lives

Call for stories - coproducing services, projects and strategies

Call for stories

We are looking for stories from voluntary sector organisations, people in health and social care systems and people with lived experience from across England who have been involved in coproducing services, projects and strategies.

Who we are
The Health and Wellbeing Alliance is a partnership between the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), NHS England, UK Health Security Agency and 18 voluntary sector partners and consortia.

The alliance ensures the voice of lived experience is incorporated early in policy development, and that important health and public health announcements and messages are shared through reaching communities who may be directly impacted
via direct consultation.

This project is being led by partners from Carers Trust, the Mental Health Consortium, Race Equality Foundation, NDTi (with the Valuing People’s Alliance)
and Age UK.

What we’ve been doing

Our initial work reached out to Integrated Care Boards (ICBs) involved in the coproduction pilots with NHSE to hear about and share examples of great practice. These illustrated ways in which people with lived experience, voluntary sector organisations and the ICB worked together to ensure people’s and patients voices were at the heart of local service design or decision making.

What we want to do now

We hope to gather more stories – both positive experiences and negative ones – from different types of coproduction as we believe it is important to learn both from the successes as well as the challenges.

How can I get involved?

You can fill out this survey.

We have made a template that you can use to share your story. If you would like an Easy Read version of any of this please let us know.

Alternatively, you can send us forms of writing, reports, case examples, poems, or even record us a short video or audio file sharing your experiences and learning.

If you want to share your story, please contact and we will get in touch with you to find the best way for you to share your example.

What will happen to my story?

The stories will form a bank of publicly available case studies used to illustrate good practice and codesign. This bank will significantly add to the best practice examples that are readily available for ICBs to read and learn from, supporting their own practice.

We will not name individuals, unless you tell us that you would like your name included in the case study.

If you have any questions about the form please contact us on
