Principles of Co-design

Co-design is increasingly being used by both government and the community sector to describe a range of activities and processes that involve people who use a particular service or product in the design of that service or product.  However there is a lack of consistency in how it is used and what it means in practice.

If co-design is to be effective there needs to be agreement on what it is and how it works. This paper presents the community sector’s perspective on what we have identified as the key elements of co-design.
