Supporting Co-operative Councils

Glasgow City Council’s vision includes “Putting co‑operative values and our citizens at the heart of everything we do”. In 2015 we worked in partnership with the Council to develop a programme looking at co‑operative identity and values. The short workshops explored what being a co‑operative council meant for Glasgow and how working co‑operatively impacts on professional practice.

The sessions were attended by co‑operative champions from various departments and members of the City Council’s Co‑operative Development team. The programme was a great success with outstanding feedback from participants about the content, tutor’s knowledge and learning experience.

“Really informative few hours. The activity and discussion around what a Co‑operative Council is and what needs to change was really good. I feel more confident about communicating what we are trying to achieve and how being a Co‑operative Council can facilitate this.” – Workshop participant.
