           Transforming Public Service Delivery


Welcome to the home page for iNetwork’s Fifteenth Annual Conference, this year we hosted over 150 delegates, around 30 speakers and 10 exhibitors to share their service innovation stories and resources in practice from all levels, including community leaders, practitioners and local enterprises. 

Journey to a Better Place: Transforming Public Service Delivery showcased the very best of place-based working in local public services. The conference  focused on the continuing journey to build and maintain vibrant and sustainable communities for the future.

This well-established conference is the best opportunity in the North of England this year to learn, and be inspired by, ground-breaking projects which deliver value for the people and communities we serve. Sessions will be divided between high-profile plenary panel sessions with Q&A and best practice sharing seminars from practitioners and trusted suppliers.

The conference will be a virtual event, hosted online and will highlight the very best in place-based working with a focus on driving transformation in communities.
