Responding to COVID-19: insight, support and guidance


CIPFA’s consultancy service, launched in 2016, brings people together across organisations to share and signpost innovative practices and bring robust but pragmatic methods to everything we do.

CIPFA and C.Co

Public services face unparalleled challenges over the coming years, and CIPFA believed the scale of challenges required new thinking and a fresh approach.

CIPFA believed that the traditional consultancy approach, which supports the sector, needed to be reinvented to meet the challenges ahead. That’s why we’ve created C.Co – a new consultancy service staffed by leading practitioners from across the sector. This subsidiary, which is part of the CIPFA Group, has its own separate style and identity but benefits from CIPFA’s wealth of knowledge and expertise.

C.Co services

C.Co is a value-driven service, which puts integrity, creativity and sector expertise at the heart of everything we deliver.

What’s more, as budgets are squeezed, we understand that price matters. We don’t carry the same costs as traditional consultancy firms, which means we deliver solutions at a more affordable public sector rate, which are also IR35 compliant.

C.Co offers a package of services for public service reform, improvement and efficiency in the public sector. 

C.Co services can broadly be categorised as follows: 

  • Consultancy: Services to assist organisations to develop sustainable operating models. Our team are experts in collaboration models, commercialism and demand management. 
  • Training: Modules which complement the journey from strategy development through to evidence-based decision making and implementation. 
  • Bespoke: Tailored, client-driven IR35-compliant consultancy services. 

Every organisation we work with is different, so we offer tailor-made services that can be designed to your brief. To find out more about C.Co services click here.
