Working Together brings together all parts of the Hibernian community – from Club management, supporter groups, right through to individual fans – to look at how supporter involvement can be harnessed to help the Club.
Working Together has already delivered a number of successful initiatives – from suggestions concerning Season Ticket payment plans to match day activities, with more in the pipeline.
The structure of WT was changed in the summer of 2015 to help focus energy and deliver a greater number of projects.
Meetings are now held on the second Wednesday of every second month. The dates and locations are as follows:
October 14 - The Hibernian Training Centre
December 9 - The Hibs Club, Sunnyside
February 10 - Easter Road Stadium
April 13 - The Hibs Club, Sunnyside
The agenda for these meetings will usually comprise a keynote speaker, working group updates, Q&A with Club Directors, and reports from Hibernian Supporters Limited, Hibernian Supporters Association and the Supporter Directors on the Hibernian Board.
Current working groups include:
Wear Your Colours - to improve the retail and merchandise range in the Hibernian Clubstore
Build the Fanbase - to develop community ticketing initiatives and help attract people to Easter Road
Loyalty Scheme - to review the Hibernian Loyalty Scheme and suggest improvements
Welcome to Easter Road - to improve services to fans at Easter Road
Stadium Improvements & Decor - to improve the look of the stadium
Stadium Reorganisation - to review the current stadium set up and provide recommendations for consideration

Early successes of the new structure include the production of the 140 anniversary retro jersey and Hands Off Hibs t-shirt, the painting of the club crest and key quotes in the East and West concourses and the continuatrion of the Tickets for Schools initiative.
