Hull City Council has joined a network of local authorities committed to transforming the way they work with communities.
The Co-operative Councils’ Innovation Network was created as a result of public sector funding cuts during one of the most challenging periods for local government.
As councils look for innovative ways of providing services, the network provides an active hub for co-operative policy development, innovation and advocacy.
Councillor Stephen Brady, Leader of Hull City Council, said: “I am delighted that our application to join the Cooperative Councils Network has been accepted.
“The council has a strong cooperative approach and we look forward to benefiting from, and contributing to, the network.”
