Cork | Ireland

Cork County Council is the second largest Local Authority in the Republic of Ireland, and the largest based on geographic area size. Proud sponsor of SDGC18.

Cork County Council is the second largest Local Authority in the Republic of Ireland, and the largest based on geographic area size. The Council has an annual revenue budget of approximately €300m and services a population of 400,000 people, or 141,000 households. Current staff numbers total 2,000 approximately.

Cork County Council aims to transform how it operates, by looking outwards rather than inwards, by engaging with citizens, users, elected representatives, communities, businesses and other stakeholders (public and private) by using an all-inclusive approach to co-designing and co-creating betterservices.
A dedicated Service Design Team was formed within the organisation in 2016 and is fostering an educational environment for the development of service design in the Cork area, allowing the teaching of the discipline to be supported by the experience of transforming services in a real local authority environment.
With the formation of the dedicated team, Cork County Council was building internal service design capacity, but beyond that, also wanted to create a local environment where that capacity could continue to grow and expand.
