Transforming and Innovating Public Services
Welcome to our Transforming and Innovating Public Services (TIPS) Programme 2021/2022. Our updated programme has been co-produced with members and is designed to engage professionals at various levels of the organisation in the public, private, community voluntary and faith sectors. Our key aim in establishing this programme is to support high impact systemic change for people and places and remain a relevant member led programme. It is focused on delivering improved outcomes through innovative citizen centred solutions that combine data, technology and culture change.
We offer a selection of plenary sessions, round table discussions, leading speakers, opportunities to discuss regional and national challenges and more. It provides an opportunity to meet with colleagues and to informally discuss priorities and generally embrace the nature of this group. With the intention of continuing to develop the momentum and enthusiasm already gained we encourage you to take an active part in TIPS, to make the most of discussions, networking and other opportunities.
Priorities and Objectives for 2021-22
People and Place: This priority supports iNetwork’s members to creatively find people-centred sustainable solutions and approaches to navigate and access local public assets.
Digital Innovation: This priority supports iNetwork’s members to deliver the intelligence and prevention agenda by developing capabilities to make better informed decisions and utilising digital technology to improve lives.
Culture and Wellbeing: This priority supports iNetwork’s members to develop organisational change to achieve successful outcomes in the things that matter most to people, organisations and communities.
iNetwork allows you to share challenges and opportunities, making your working practices more efficient whilst developing a great support network from across the public sector
