It looks like you want to set up an organisation which is not a co-operative
Although we believe that every organisation can benefit from working more co-operatively, not every business is suited to being a co-operative.
Co-operatives are identified by two key behaviours - member control of the business and a strong ethical sense.
To find out about how we define co-operatives, take a look at Practical Tools for Defining Co-operative and Mutual Enterprise, which is the basis for this quiz.
Just because a co-operative isn't right for you, it doesn't mean that there aren't other possibilties. The Business Link website gives details of other types of organisation working in the social enterprise sector that might be useful for you, or Social Enterprise UK offer a number of useful guides and publications.
