This year iNetwork is celebrating being 20 years old! iNetwork was established as a partnership of public sector organisations in 2003. As it is our birthday year, we’ll use 2023-24 to reflect and celebrate the achievements, innovation, successes and memories we have had as an organisation, as well as looking forward to what the future might hold for iNetwork. 

iNetwork is a local public sector partnership made up of councils, police, fire, health, housing and voluntary sector organisations and has enabled these organisations to individually and collectively deliver more innovative, high quality and cost effective services.

In the last 20 years we have launched and delivered the Innovation Awards, the North West Warning Advice & Reporting Point (NW WARP), the iNetwork Annual Conference, influenced national agendas and initiatives and so much more. Whether it has been through one of our programme areas or through discussion with our Network Leadership Groups we have led the way for innovation.

We will be celebrating our anniversary over the course of the next 12 months, celebrating key milestones and achievements, stories from those individuals who have been involved with iNetwork and lots of blogs and images to capture those all important memories.

If you have a fond memory of iNetwork, an image, or would like to write a short piece on how iNetwork has helped you or your organisation in the last 20 years then please do forward and send anything across to us at
