Model governing documents

All new co-operatives will need a governing document which sets out what the co-operative is going to do, by whom and in what way.

Model governing documents (often referred to as 'model rules') are template governing documents that can be used by new organisations to make sure they set off on the correct legal footing.

You can access all the model governing documents here, or read further information in the sections below.
