Co-Design is about health professionals, consumers and carers working in partnership to achieve the best possible quality of life for individuals with complex needs and their families.

Community engagement is an important feature of a person-centred approach. Co-Design works most effectively when involvement in the communities and networks that surround an individual and their families is not just recognised but actively encouraged. Carers, consumers and health professionals all have a role to play in making this happen and there are many benefits that flow directly from making it work.
