Ep2: Yes to co-production and personalisation
In this episode of Yes to You, the Lifeways social care podcast, our host Paul is joined by Jodie Allen-Cawley, Lifeways’ Group Head of Quality and Health & Safety, to discuss how co-production and personalisation help social care providers avoid ‘serviceland’ – an all-too-common scenario where people receiving support are led by their teams and the rhythm of the service where they live. Jodie also looks back at the history of social care, starting when she began work, first as a carer, in the 1980s.Play episode
