Abstract

Co-production involves knowledge and skills based on both lived experiences of citizens and professionally training of staff. In Europe co-production is viewed as an essential tool for meeting the demographic, political and economic challenges of welfare states. However, co-production is facing challenges because public services and civil society are rooted in two different logics. These challenges are typically encountered by provider organisations and their staff who must convert policies and strategies into practice. Denmark is a welfare state with a strong public services sector and a low involvement of volunteers. The aim of the study was to investigate how provider organisations and their staff navigate between the two logics. The present analysis is a critical case study of two municipalities selected from seven participating municipalities, for their maximum diversity. The setting was the Community Families programme, which aim was to support social network of mental health users by offering regular contact with selected private families. The task of the municipalities was to initiate and support Community Families.
