Co-production & involvement audit for organisations (online)

The Co-production and Involvement Audit is a simple self-assessment tool which helps organisations assess how effective they are at successfully adopting co-productive ways of working. It consists of fifteen action statements, organised in accordance with the ‘five core principles of co-production’ each of which is given a score.

It provides a high-level snapshot of how you are doing, alongside an understanding of what is working, and what needs to be done to keep improving. The Co-production and Involvement Audit’s uses include supporting report writing and formal evaluations, external audits and internal periodic reviews.

This is the online version of the tool. For a downloadable/printable pdf, click here.

How to use this tool:

  • Select the number matching your progress on each statement (5 principles, 3 statements per principle).
  • Reflect on what would help you to improve your practice. The comments fields are required too, it’s an important part of the self-reflective process!
  • Click the button to get a downloadable chart with your scores and reflections.
