Who Are We?

The Co-operative Councils’ Innovation Network is a non-party-political active hub for co-operative policy development, innovation and advocacy which is:

  • Action-focused: a vehicle for helping councils translate co-operative policy and principles into practice
  • Membership-based: funded by modest membership subscriptions from its member councils
  • Open to all UK councils: members share the belief that working co-operatively with communities holds the key to tackling today’s challenges
  • Part of the local government family: the network is a Special Interest Group registered with the Local Government Association where we work to promote innovation in local government
