The Co-operative Councils’ Innovation Network has four types of membership; each type of membership must be applied for under the process as set from time to time by the Executive Oversight Committee and the Values and Principles Board:
- Local councils (Unitary, County, District and Borough) in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales
- Combined authorities and Police and Crime Commissioners
- Town and Parish Councils in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales
- Groups of elected representatives engaged in local councils (Unitary, County, District and Borough) in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales:
- Minority administrations of local councils where opposition parties block membership and the administration therefore joins as a political group
- Opposition groups that will seek to become a Full Member if they take control of their local authority
3. Other elected authorities:
- The devolved administrations of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
- Local and regional government within Europe and beyond
