We will develop systems that enable citizens to be equal partners in designing and commissioning public services and in determining the use of public resources.
We will support the active engagement of the full range of residents in decision making and priority setting.
Walking the talk
As a membership organisation, we will make this statement of our principles operational by:
• Co-operation among members: Our members work together to help each other implement our values, sharing experiences and learning.
• Openness of membership: Full, Associate and Affiliate Membership is open to any qualifying Council, organisation or individual who shares our values and is committed to putting them into action.
• Co-production of the Network’s work: Members help shape the Network’s work programme and the content of events and written products.
• Action-focused: The network is a vehicle for helping councils translate co-operative values and principles into policy and practice.
•Membership-based: The network is majority funded by modest membership subscriptions from its member Councils, Associates and Affiliates.
•Non-party-political: Members share the belief that working co-operatively within and across communities holds the key to tackling today’s challenges.
Established in 2016, branding.coop provides hands-on support and guidance to organisations wishing to promote their cooperative identity.
With both local government and international cooperative experience, Nicola has managed the operations and communications for the Co-operative Councils’ Innovation Network since June 2016. She provides a focal point for CCIN Members, prospective members and other organisations wishing to learn more about the Network.
