For local public services to continually improve, we need to learn the lessons of successes and failures from elsewhere. Not just from within the Uk and not just from within the public sector. Keeping abreast of what is going on is a full time task and our research, our links to local public services across the UK, our annual awards and our Innovation Club help us in this task. But as a social enterprise our mission is to imporve local public services so we don't build a wall around our intellectual property and meter access to it. We share our knowledge to benefit of all, local public services and their residents and businesses.
