Co-Production Collective: co-producing change together
Formerly known as the UCL Centre for Co-Production in Health Research, we are now Co-Production Collective. We are entirely co-produced by our community! Our new website is on the way, but isn’t quite there yet… in the meantime, we hope this page is a useful intro to who we are and how you can get involved.
Who are we?
We are a community of patients, carers, researchers, practitioners, students and anyone else who is interested in co-production (in the health context or more generally). We work with individuals and organisations including universities, charities, funders, NHS bodies, local authorities, housing associations and grassroots groups.
Our vision is a world where diverse knowledge and experience is recognised and valued in the co-production of research.
We are a co-production community where everyone is welcome. Together, we learn, connect and champion co-production to create lasting change.
What co-production means to us
Co-production is an approach to working together in equal partnership and for equal benefit. For us, this means living our core values (as a PDF). These values - challenging, human, inclusive, transparent - are central to everything we do.

What have we done so far?
We launched officially as Co-Production Collective on 22 October 2020 – check out what happened by having a read of our blog. We have also launched 'Our Direction 2020-2022', a statement of who we are, why we exist, and what we’re working towards.
But this was just the latest stage in a journey which began in 2017, when we started from scratch with some Wellcome Trust funding and the aim to set up a Centre for Co-production in Health Research. We have held numerous co-production sessions to develop our plans and funded two rounds of pilot projects to help us learn what works and what doesn’t when co-producing.
Although we’re now Co-Production Collective, we’re still co-producing ourselves! There’s lots more work to be done (see above for our latest co-production opportunities) and we’re also involved in lots of other co-production projects across the UK and beyond.
