We collaborate

between authorities and communities

A national network of 22 local authorities has selected Tin Smart Social with our partners to join a framework agreement for the

Cooperative Council’s Innovation Network (CCIN).

Founded on the traditions of the co-operative movement, the Co-operative Councils Innovation Network is a collaboration between local authorities committed to transforming the way they work with communities. Their work recognises the need to define a new model for local government built on civic leadership, with councils working in equal partnership with local people to shape and strengthen communities.

Tin Smart Social is one of only 14 UK suppliers to be selected for this framework, and we are now eligible to utilise our ‘ theory-of-change ’ “INVOLVE/SOLVE/EVOLVE” to help the CCIN meet the unprecedented challenges facing the public sector and local communities.

They have specifically engaged us to:

inspire and design

innovative co-operative policy over a number of policy areas and themes, with a focus on delivering differently and redesign of public services in line with co-operative values and principles

capacity and legacy

demonstrate the ability to build capacity and leave a legacy that continues to deliver outcomes even after the funding and supporting resources have moved out


credibility and profile

bring credibility and profile to the work of the CCIN reaching across a wide range of sectors and agencies
