Involve, Influence, Inspire
iNetwork’s vision is to help local public service organisations to “collaborate to innovate” and thereby provide effective support for their users, patients and communities.
A large number of councils, police, fire, health, housing and voluntary sector organisations across the North and Midlands are members of iNetwork. In addition we run national programmes for Government and host the local government information standards organisation, iStandUK.
For a full introduction to iNetwork, our innovation programmes and services, please see our annual support brochure.
