As Co-operative Councils, our members are at the cutting edge of policy innovation – and it is often a tough place to be. Councils often need to move quickly and flexibly to be on the front foot when it comes to ‘doing things differently’.
It is often necessary to bring in extra capacity and specific expertise to be able to do this, and there is often a need to seek independent challenge to test assumptions and policy design. The CCIN recognises this and wants its members to be as enabled as possible to develop practical policy solutions as quickly and informed as possible – and this is where the Consultancy Framework comes in.
Our multi-supplier Framework allows all CCIN members (and the CCIN itself) to select from a specialist, prescribed pool of organisations to help in developing policy, implementing prototypes and building capacity, both in communities and inside the organisation. Follow the links below to find out more about each of the organisations on the Framework.
