This website aims to support the people who live, work, provide and use services in Lambeth to move to more cooperative ways of working. It is hosted and serviced by the council, but has been co-produced with the cooperative council early adopters and wider community of practice.
It is designed to act as a repository, a place where users can both find and post information, tips, advice, learning and good (and bad!) practice with others. It will also signpost users to agencies and organisations that offer advice, support and expertise in cooperative working.
It is, therefore, a collaborative effort, and its content will grow and develop over time as it is contributed to by residents, practitioners, public servants, elected members, community representatives and anyone else who has an interest in the delivery of public services in Lambeth.
You’re probably wondering where to start and how to find what you’re looking for. There are a number of ways you can find and contribute to information on the site. You could start by looking at the latest posts that have been written, or you can search the posts using the categories or tags on the right-hand side.
